International Women’s Day: WPL Leadership Campaign exhibition at the European Parliament

In celebration of International Women’s Day, WPL Founder and President Silvana Koch-Mehrin and MEP Angelika Mlinar are hosting an exhibition of the Women Political Leaders Global Forum Leadership Campaign at the European Parliament.

An official opening of the exhibition took place on March 8th but the exhibition will be on display between March 6th and 10th.

The Leadership Campaign was launched in support of the UN Women HeForShe campaign, which aims to engage men as agents of change for the achievement of gender equality.  The exhibition showcases testimonials from over 70 male Presidents and Prime Ministers from across 55 countries, in support of increasing the number and influence of women in politics.

This high level campaign resides under the patronage of the Icelandic Prime Minister.  Iceland is the country where women have (almost) the same chances and opportunities as men.  It is the global champion of gender equality and home of the first elected woman President.

When:  6-10 March, 2017. Official opening: March 8

Where: Mezzanine YEHUDI MENUHIN, PHS building 1st Floor, European Parliament
