ABOUT THE EVENT
Even though women and men have the same legal right to take part in politics, women are still less likely to get involved in political parties and stand for office today. The Liberal International Women in Political Parties inclusivity index and handbook aims to increase the participation of women in political party structures and remove hurdles for them to do so, by gathering best practices from all over the world.
Join us in a discussion with political and civil society representatives and activists from Europe and beyond!
