Briefing, Labour Party

Women’s Conference

Labour Women’s Conference will take place online over the weekend of 26th and 27th June.

Each CLP or Women’s Branch can send two delegates, with at least one identifying as BAME, Disabled or LGBT+. All delegates must have been Labour members since at least 10th December 2020. Delegations must be registered by midnight on Wednesday 26th May (the original 10th May deadline has been changed) – meaning those CLPs closing down for the May 6th elections should elect their delegates urgently if they want to make the deadline.

The deadline for submitting a resolution to Women’s Conference is also 26th May (brought forward from 28th May). It must be on a policy issue related to women and not on party organisation. The Conference can agree two resolutions to send to Annual Conference in September.

CLP delegates to the Conference will be voting for six women to represent them on the newly established 17-member National Women’s Committee, decades after the former Women’s Committee was abolished by Labour’s right wing. Nominations for candidates for the Women’s Committee must also be submitted by 26th May.

Please nominate and ask your delegates to vote for the Grassroots Labour Women slate of:

Ekua Bayunu, Manchester Central CLP. Membership number: L1514209

Mandy Clare, Eddisbury CLP. Membership number: L1398270

Tricia Duncan, Perth and Kinross CLP. Membership number: A489847

Pamela Fitzpatrick, Harrow West CLP. Membership number: A220612

Chlöe Hopkins, Beverley and Holderness CLP. Membership number: L1492882

We also encourage CLPs to support Momentum’s Solma Ahmed for the sixth place, and we hope there will be close co-operation amongst the Labour left at this critical time.
