Thank you for your interest in WE Sheffield.
WE want to thank everyone who helped our local election campaign - whether you donated to our war chest, helped to distribute leaflets, door knocked, liked and shared things on social media - we couldn’t have done it without you.
In particular WE would like to thank our awesome candidates Megan Senior (Ecclesall) and Amy Gooding (Walkley) who had never stood for public office before. We are so proud of their willingness to be pioneers for our party here in Sheffield.
In Ecclesall, where we actively campaigned, we secured 3.6% of the vote (276 votes). That’s an amazing result for a ward where WE have never stood before.
In Walkley, where we did not actively campaign due to our limited resources, we got 1.5% of the vote (76 votes).
Standing in elections is not just about winning, although this is of course our long-term aim. It is also about spreading the word about our party and what WE stand for. We met many people on the doorstep who had never heard of the Women’s Equality Party. Now they have.
This is the third local election campaign that we have run. Each time we learn more about how to run an effective and efficient campaign.
And the other parties are starting to take notice of who WE are and what WE stand for.
