The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is pleased to announce an event to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March 2021. Entitled “For more women in politics”, an online conference will discuss women’s participation in local, regional and European politics.
The matter of gender equality in politics has not been discussed enough and the progress is happening relatively slow. At the same time, the role of regional and local governments is essential to women in politics and serves as a stepping stone for their political careers.
Who will participate?
The conference will bring together members of the CoR, the leading organisation of the event, members of the European Parliament and participants in the CoR Young Elected Politicians Programme (YEPs) to discuss the need to address the democratic discrepancy established by the under-representation of women in the field of politics.
