Dissemination Event Cluster Three - Birmingham

The euro-zone crisis and the wider financial crisis has shaken the European project. Euro barometer surveys are showing growing levels of dissatisfaction and low levels of trust in EU institutions.

We organized a transnational workshop that allowed to highlight the results after the European elections, the picture emerged after the vote and what to be done in the next 5 years.

One thing is clear we need greater diversity in political representation. In particular we need to increase the involvement of women.

Despite the improvements in addressing inequality between men and women over the past 30-40 years, there is still a long way to go in realizing real equality. Women still face glass ceilings, pay discrimination, gender stereotyping, violence and sexual exploitation and the overwhelming bulk of care responsibilities.

Getting more women into politics is part of the process of making more headway in realizing the goal of gender equality.

The workshop  had:

  • inputs from Dr. Rosie Campbell from University of London who  presented an overview of the outcomes of the European Parliament Elections;
  • inputs from women who stood as candidates
  • Inputs from women politicians outlining their experiences and what steps they would like to see taken  to get more women elected
