Emily"s List UK exists to give financial support to women seeking to be Parliamentary candidates for the British Labour party, in order to increase the overall representation of women in British politics. Established in the UK by Barbara Follett, the idea of Emily"s List was originally pioneered by the United States" Democratic party, in 1985, when female representation in Congress was at a particularly low ebb. The name is an acronym of Early Money is Like Yeast (it makes the dough rise). Source: Dango database of archives of non-governmental organisations at http://www.dango.bham.ac.uk/
