Details

Take part in an open debate on gender equality in politics chaired by Baroness Goudie.

This year we celebrate 150 years since the first petition calling for votes for women. Currently 29 per cent of all MPs are women - a record high. Are we on the way to achieving gender equality in politics or is progress still fragile? These and other questions will be discussed.

This debate is dedicated to the late Jo Cox MP.

Following the debate there will be a drinks reception in the Abercrombie atrium at 7.30pm.
