A new network wants to encourage more women to stand for elected roles in Guernsey.
Women in Public Office, a volunteer-run group, says the island's political makeup needs to be much more diverse and wants to give women on the island more information about the roles available.
Currently, less than a third of Deputies and only around a fifth of Douzeniers in Guernsey are women.
The group's chair Shelaine Green says women are also underrepresented as Jurats, on tribunals and panels and as advisers on boards like Guernsey Ports.
The group's first networking event - Stand Up For Your Island - will allow women who are interested in roles to speak to people who already work in them. It will take place at Les Cotils on Wednesday 22 January at 5:30pm.
