Chichester’s MP, Gillian Keegan, has been placed on the inaugural Women in Westminster: The 100 published in the House Magazine. The 100 is comprised of remarkable women within the world of Westminster. The 100 women were narrowed down by a judging panel pulling together a final list of inspirational, talented women who are leading in their fields across politics and public service. The list includes some of the 220 female Members of Parliament, such as Theresa May, the former Prime Minister and Meg Hillier the influential chair of the Public Accounts Committee. As well as journalists, civil servants and activists.
Gillian said, “I feel really honoured to have been included in the Women in Westminster: The 100; which celebrates many hard-working and inspirational women. This list is not about individuals, but rather celebrating the valuable contribution women are making in politics. I hope seeing so many great role models who have achieved so much will inspire others to come forward and get involved in the world of politics.”
Baroness Anne Jenkins recently wrote, "Women in Westminster: The 100 celebrates the achievements and the valuable role women play in public life, by recognising one hundred high profile women from the world of Westminster […] comprised of women who are not only influential in their own field, but who possess the talent and platform to inspire the next generation to make a difference whether in Westminster or beyond."
