Subject: Will you stand with me against violence and harassment?

Dear [your constituency] candidates. 

In the last two years over 20 politicians have been accused of violence or harassment, and not one of them has been removed from office.

Westminster’s approach to abuse is broken. The culture of covering up, excusing and turning a blind eye to the toxic behaviour of some parliamentarians has to stop. 

With your help we can end abuse - starting with Westminster

Will you sign the Women’s Equality Party pledge, and commit to standing against violence and harassment in Westminster by voting to: 

1. Empower constituents to recall MPs found guilty of violence or harassment
2. Extend the independent investigation process to protect constituents, party activists and others not employed by Parliament
3. Ensure that all allegations of violence and harassment by prospective candidates are investigated and concluded before they are selected

This election is an opportunity to build a new parliament, one that could lead the way on tackling abuse. But that is impossible while our lawmakers are being allowed to act with impunity.  

Please sign the pledge, and commit to standing with us against violence today. 

Yours sincerely,

[Your name], a [your constituency] constituent
and The Women's Equality Party
