Women in Politics leading through crisis

Tuesday, July 21, 2020 - 09:00 to 11:00

Join Foreign Policy and the Embassy of the State of Qatar in Washington D.C. as they convene women at the helm of international affairs to explore the role of female leadership in driving global recovery and resilience.

While the coronavirus has spotlighted women heads of state and their ability to effectively respond to crises, it has also brought into renewed focus the continued underrepresentation of female political leaders and decision-makers around the world.

Tune in as we relaunch FP’s Her Power event series! Hear perspectives from prominent female leaders on the world stage on how this crisis might serve as a catalyst for gender equality in global governance.
