The event aims to bring together women of all ages, backgrounds, political affiliations and none, to a day full of inspiration, information and motivation, to explore their political purpose and path. 

It is part of positive change towards the goal of gender equal political representation, and is a key event as part of the Parliament’s 20th Anniversary programme. 

There will be also be a local element to the event, with four regional hubs watching the Chamber session and taking part in a Parliament Project workshop. 

The event aims to build opportunities for women to meet each other and for organisations to engage with women in order to support their democratic ambitions.
