The Feminist Party (Luthori), more formally known as the Feminist and LGBT Rights Coalition is a socially-liberal center left party that advocates first and foremost for Women's and LGBT rights and interests. Founded by Lawyer Hellen Jackson in 4916 it was built as a way to formalize the political power of sexual and gender minorities in Luthori and stop the power of social conservatism in the nation.
Structure[edit | edit source]
The Party President has absolute power when it comes to strategic decisions the non-governmental party can make. This includes but is not limited too where to distribute funding, the manifesto of the party, however the Party President does not decide the candidates nominated by the Feminist Party, instead using a primary election system in which card caring members of the feminist party get to select their candidates for Imperator. The Prime Minister candidate is selected by an internal election of Feminist MPs. Governmental decisions are dictated by the highest ranking Feminist Party Member in government.
The Party President is selected in a party wide election where registered members of the Feminist Party vote for the party president through an election. If no one gets 50% of the vote a runoff election automatically triggers between the two top contenders.

Formation (4916-4917)[edit | edit source]
After the Women's March on Fort William Hellen Jackson announced the creation of the Feminist Party. Its first move of action was to petition the Imperial Diet to create declaration of the rights of sexual and gender minorities. As well as protesting and petitioning, the Feminist Party focused on community involvement such as setting up scholarship programs for women and members of the LGBTQ+ community and the I Wont Go Home Campaign, where they legally defended the right for women to work by defending women who were prosecuted in court after the Imperial Diet implemented a ban on women in the work place.

After the declaration of the Snap Election of May 4917 the Feminist Party were very nervous about their prospects as their electoral infrastructure was very under developed. They did not have an nominee for Imperator or for many diet seats. Despite this lack of infrastructure the Feminist Part had a moderate success in the diet, winning 18 seats and becoming the 5th largest party in the Diet. For the Imperator election, they ran Caroline Smith, a close friend to Hellen Jackson and a Women's Studies Professor who has been working with the party seance its creation. Smith finished in last in the primary election with 11.4%
Despite being in the Opposition the Feminist Party has got key legislation passed, including but not limited to: The Middle Class Economic Plan, The Women's Working Rights Act and the Deceleration of the Rights of Religious Minorities. The Feminist Diet Leader was Janet Oplers, a 67 year old Women's Rights Activist.
