Event description

Description

Only 24% of all national parliamentarians were women as of November 2018, a slow increase from 11.3% in 1995 and as of January 2019, 11women are serving as Head of State and 10 are serving as Head of Government. Globally, there are 29 States in which women account for less than 10 per cent of parliamentarians in single or lower houses, as of November 2018, including 4 chambers with no women at all. (UNWOMEN)

What these figures show is a staggering gender gap in political participation across the world. To mark the 2019 UK Parliament week we are collaborating with the UK Parliament to host our first Leadership and Political Participation Forum to discuss how women can become more active in politics in communities, get our voices heard and influence legislation. We will also be tackling the issues that hold women's political participation back.

This event is free and open to all.

In Partnership with The UK Parliament.
