The CLP (Constituency Labour Party) Women’s Officer role is not just about working with women members, but also about influencing how the whole CLP operates. We need Labour Party women to play an active and engaged role and it’s the job of the Women’s Officer to ensure that they’re getting the support to do that.
The Women’s Officer is also a key representative of women members on the executive of the CLP, playing a role in decision-making and strategy within the CLP and ensuring that women are fully involved in the work of our local party. The Women’s Officer also takes a leading role in making sure that the campaigning work of the constituency reaches out and engages with women voters.
A key part of the role is also to recruit more women members and then to encourage and support them to become activists.
Hilary Snell and Lynette McKone currently share the role of Women’s Officer for Penrith & The Border CLP. Hilary is pictured above with Rebecca Long Bailey, Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
