Since 1918, when women aged 30 or over got the vote, Croydon has never returned a female MP to the House of Commons. Instead, in the last 97 years, Croydon has returned 27 men to represent us in Parliament. Will 2015 be the year Croydon catches up with much of the modern world and elects a woman to represent us all in parliament?
Sarah Jones is the first woman with a realistic chance of being elected to Parliament and you can find out more about her at Sarah Jones website for 2015 General Election.
The name of the men who have represented Croydon are at Elected MPs for Croydon from 1918. Info from http://www.leighrayment.com/commons/Ccommons6.htm
