WIP is honoured that His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan has announced his patronage of the WIP Global Summit 2016 in Jordan. The Summit will bring together more than 400 female Parliamentarians from around the globe, and is indeed the first conference of its kind in the MENA region.
We are also delighted to announce that His Majesty has joined the WIP Leadership Campaign with the following testimony: “We need more women in Parliaments and as political leaders because no lasting positive change can ever be achieved unless women are an integral part of it.”
The WIP Leadership Campaign “We need more women in Parliaments and as political leaders because…” aims to highlight the commitment of male Presidents and Prime Ministers around the world to increase the number of women in politics.
