Women in the 21st century British Parliament

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 16th Nov 2016

This event explores the position of women in Parliament and their responsibilities towards their voting communities. It looks at how women have changed British democracy, increased equality and diversity, and improved community representations to create a fairer and more suitable governing system for the 21st century.

What will be the event about? 

A historical overview includes the acceptance of women in Parliament, their rights to vote and their present and future roles (such as the “Vote 100” project in 2018). The event compares the historical efforts of women and their achievements to the present efforts of modern women in Parliament, from both Houses, to bring timely and satisfactory changes in representation. The event also explores the influence of women on governmental practices and policies.

Our aim is to introduce historic evidence related to the fight for the right to vote and the right to equal treatment in work and by the law. We look at women's representation in political life, the balance in voting in Parliament on issues which concern women’s independence and well-being and family issues, as well as the continuing struggle for access to equal pay and benefits. 

Parliament Week is an Annual event, which promotes Democracy in the UK and reflects on work of Parliament as a representative body of the people. Pro Art & CO is an official partner and we are proud to be an active participant in Parliament Week events for last few years. The audience will be encouraged to be proactive, and discuss the raised issues with the panel, which we hope will help people to understand how to achieve their goals as active citizens. 

Cost: Free of Charge
