The Women in Parliaments Global Forum (WIP) will present the WIP – World Bank Study ‘The Female Political Career’ at the Palace of Westminster, on 20th October. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion that will address ways of increasing the number of Women in Parliaments.
Women are still very much alone in politics. The WEF’s annual Global Gender Gap Report shows the bias: health has a small gender gap of 4%, education of 6%, economic participation of 40%, and politics an incredibly high 79%. The glass ceiling might have some cracks, but it still needs to be shattered. The Panel will address ways for increasing the number of women in political leadership, and discuss best-practice examples.
