2. Invite a friend, help build our party and spread the word
WE are a new party, existing for only two years. What we have learned through knocking on doors in this election is that when people hear about us for the first time, very often they are excited to find out we exist and are engaged with our objectives. Simply sharing the message that WE exist is helping us to make history.
Why not set yourself a challenge to recruit two new WE members this year - if each of us did this, our membership number would exceed 200,000 - that's 4x the Green Party and 5x UKIP. This would send a very clear message to other political parties that women's equality must be made a priority. Find your local branch and support their activity, organise events, share and engage with our social media campaigns and discuss our objectives with your friends and family.
Our party would not be where it is now without the dedication of our members and supporters. Our future is in your hands and this is only the beginning.
3. Invest in the future of women's equality in the UK
If you are able to donate to the Women's Equality Party, whether £10 or £1000, you are signalling a strong confidence in WE. Our ability to deliver extraordinary results as the new and growing political force in the UK relies on your contribution. We have built our party from the ground up over the last two years thanks to the generosity of our supporters, and we are counting on you to continue this support so that we can grow and expand.
Your money enables us to do vital work; this election it meant WE were the only party to pay the cost for candidates' childcare so that inspirational women could afford to stand for Parliament and have their voice heard. Your donations paid for hundreds of thousands of leaflets, many of which landed on door mats around the UK of voters who had never before heard of WE or been given the option to vote for a feminist party. Your generosity paid for our party to run a digital campaign which reached over two million social media users in the space of 48 hours.
WE mean it when we say every pound donated makes a difference.
