Equality Between Women And Men

EDM number 2327 in 1992-93, proposed by Anne Campbell on 14/07/1993.

That this House proclaims the need to achieve a balanced distribution of political and public power between men and women; demands equality of participation by women and men in public and political decision-making; underlines the need for fundamental change to the structure of decision-making procedures in order to ensure such equality, because formal and informal equality between men and women is a fundamental human right, because women represent more than half the population and democracy requires parity in the representation and the administration of the nation, because women represent half the potential talent and skills of humanity and their under-representation in decision-making is a loss for society as a whole, because the under-representation of women in decision-making prevents full account being taken of the interests and needs of the population as a whole and because a balanced participation by women and men in decision-making would produce different ideas, values and styles of behaviour suited to a fairer and more balanced world for all, both women and men.

This motion has been signed by a total of 89 MPs, 6 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
