Workshop: Women in Politics
Politics is a "man's world": less than a quarter of all parliamentarians are female. We wanted to discuss this topic with young women who want to gain a foothold in the political arena. By involving politicians, think-tankers, activists, public affairs representatives and companies we wanted to speak openly and honestly about the hurdles women still face today and how they manage to overcome them. Through our workshops, we wanted to contribute to building a world where the share of women in politics finally reflects the share of women in society.
The event on 13 June 2017 was organized as a cooperation between Europawissenschaften Berlin and ‚mentor me‘, a social start up focussing on promoting and empowering young women in politics.
