The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Women in Parliament was set up in 2010. Its aim is to make Parliament more representative of the country it serves.  The APPG endeavours to reach out to women to encourage them into public life and to look at ways to increase the number of women in Parliament. Whilst the current number of female Parliamentarians has increased to 22.6% in the House of Commons and 22.8% in the House of Lords, all political parties agree that there is much more to do to create a modern, aspirational and representative Parliament.
