The WIP Mexico Summit (7-9 October 2015), co-hosted by the Women in Parliaments Global Forum (WIP) and the Mexican Senate, marked the 40th anniversary of the First World Conference on Women.

More than 200 Parliamentarians coming from 60 different countries addressed pressing issues on the global agenda such as migration, trade, health care and sustainable development goals. Furthermore, the conference included working sessions on violence against women (organised by the Mexican Senate), disaster risk reduction (organised by UNISDR), taxation (organised by the OECD) and peace and security (organised by UN Women).

The preliminary exhibition “We need more Women in Parliaments and as political leaders because…” was presented for the first time during the Summit.
