All members (men and women) of the Party can be members of the CWO as long as they agree to its Aim “To support more women into public life”.

The CWO is a self funding organisation run mainly by volunteers. We do not receive money from the Conservative Party. Please give what you can afford, donations start at £10 . If you wish to give over £500 please get in touch cwo@conservativewomen.uk
