  Theresa May Monday 2 December 2002  
In July, not long after she'd been appointed chairman of the Conservative Party, Theresa May appeared on Woman's Hour to discuss the party's record on the selection of female candidates. She seemed quite confident that she could make a difference.

But the news is not good. It was reported over the weekend that Theresa May has 'presided over a dramatic collapse' in the number of women selected so far to fight seats at the next election.
There's been a fall of 19% on her predecessor, David Davies' record. So are the local associations not as open to modernisation as she might have thought and what's she going to do about it?
Theresa May joins Jenni to discuss.
