Abstract

Leading up to the May 2010 general election the Conservative Party pledged to deliver policies to benefit women and promote women decision-making in the party itself. Yet the effect of government cuts on women and the continued dominance of males in the party’s inner circle leads Sarah Childs and Paul Webb to question the party’s, and the coalition government’s commitment to gendered approaches to policy-making.
