Women2Win is a mentoring and pressure group within the British Conservative Party that promotes the election of more Conservative women MPs and increased involvement of Conservative women in public life.[1]

Women2Win was founded in 2005 by Theresa May (who subsequently became Prime Minister) and by Anne Jenkin (who became Baroness Jenkin of Kennington).[2][3] In 2018, Theresa May launched Women2WinWales at the Welsh Conservative Party Conference, launching the campaign to elect the first female Welsh Conservative MP.[4]

When Women2Win was founded there were 17 Conservative women MPs (9% of the parliamentary party) and by 2018 this had increased to 67 (20%);[5] the work of Women2Win and of Theresa May in particular have been credited for contributing to this trend.[6]
