[Brussels, 15 May 2018] We are happy to announce that our second flagship Women’s Forum in Brussels is coming up with an opening event on 7 June 2018. This year’s edition, in recognition of the upcoming European Elections will address the theme of “Women ReShaping Power”. Over 100 leading women’s rights activists from the EWL membership across Europe will be in Brussels to participate. This will form an important part of our efforts to build momentum towards the 2019 European Election.
We will be launching our campaign ’50:50 Women for Europe - Europe for Women’ to support women’s political empowerment. Join us for an impressive feminist line-up, lively debate and an informal drink afterwards!
