This is a web-site for girls but it's not all make-up and Manolos!

The serious bit is that they are working at trying to engage women in the political process and had launched a "Use your vote" campaign. The launch included a number of speakers from the three main political parties and Sarah Montague from The Today Programme oversaw the proceedings in a very lively way.

Patricia Hewitt and Tessa Jowell had been billed but were replaced by two back bench women MPs but Teresa May did turn up for the Tories.

Questions ranged from female icons through health/choice and included asylum. Hopefully the site will be arranging on-line discussions so it could all prove to be very interesting.
