Smashing the Glass Ceiling - how to get more women into politics

  • The Canvas Cafe 42 Hanbury Street London, England, E1 5JL United Kingdom (map)

There are 1 million more women, than men, in the UK but it has taken 100 years to get 32% of women into the UK Government.  Surely this is not a fair representation of the UK nation.  And how much longer will it take to get a fair representation of our nation and its rich cultural diversity into our UK Government?

With a fairer representation, some of the issues that need urgent attenion such as domestic violence and honour killings would be tackled with more vigour and pressure.  

Join Lesley Abdela, British expert on women's rights and representation, Frances Scott from 50:50 Parliament and Mary Fenwick, International Business Coach and Jounalist, for a lively debate on how to get more women into UK politics.  What are the barriers and how do we change the current inequalities in our democractic system.
