Winning Women's Votes
Woman's Hour launches its Winning Women's Votes campaign

Only 59% of women voted in the last general election and current polling suggests the figure for the next one could be even lower.  So what would win your vote? 

Over the next few weeks, in what is likely to be election year, we'll be examining issues of particular concern to women and asking - what the political parties should do to get you to the ballot box? 

And in February Woman's Hour will be putting your concerns to each of the party leaders  in a series of live interviews as we challenge them to win your vote.

Today in the first of our discussions Jenni is joined by Katherine Rake,Director of the Fawcett Society, Sam Baker, Editor of Cosmo magazine and Katy Bravery, Deputy Editor of Saga magazine to ask if women really care about politics?
