Gender Parity in democracy: Let’s keep the balance! (Valletta, 2 April 2014)

[Brussels, 26 March 2014] European Women’s Lobby member, the Maltese Confederation for Women’s Rights Organisations, is organising, together with the European Parliament Office in Malta, a public debate on gender parity inside the European Union. It will take place on Wednesday 2nd April 2014 at Dar l-Ewropa at St. Paul’s Street, Valletta between 8.30am to 1.20pm.

In regards to the upcoming elections this seminar will discuss the importance of parity democracy as well as the various barriers that are hindering gender parity to become a reality. They will furthermore look at possible solutions to minimise the current underrepresentation of women in political decision-making, like for example reconciliation policies, the transformation of structures and stereotypes and a real commitment to gender equality.
