Join us for Liberal Breakfast on violence against women in politics

Mircea Serdin

The ALDE Party in coordination with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation Europe is happy to invite you to the next Liberal Breakfast, taking place on Wednesday 25 November at 9:30 CET!

To mark the start of the international campaign of 16 Days of Activism, the event will focus on violence against women in politics. Using research conducted by the ALDE Party, the event will explore not only the barriers that exist for women who want to enter into a career in politics but also how online and in-person harassment against elected female officials can lead them to leave their political careers.

The event will aim not only to shed a light on this important issue, but explore possibilities on how we can protect and uplift women in politics in Europe and across the world, so that they can govern and lead without fear of violence or harassment, as well as a conversation on how we can collectively change the culture that causes this issue to happen.

When: Wednesday 25 November at 09:30 AM CET
