SDG5 has identified the need to ensure women’s full and effective political participation, as well as equal opportunity for leadership at all levels of public life. Join us as we discuss how women’s political participation – both domestically and internationally – has developed in recent years; how political parties respond and adapt; the role that intersectionality and male allies play in changing gender norms in politics; and remaining barriers to equitable participation.
There will be opportunity for Q&A. A light breakfast will be served.
