PANEL DISCUSSION I: Women In Politics: Conversations With Great Political Minds On Female Leadership And Social Transformation
  • According to research, in the past 20 years, women have doubled their global numbers in parliaments, from 11 to 22 percent. Seventeen percent of ministers globally are women; and in 2015 there were 18 women as heads of state or government including the impressive Two-Term President of Liberia. Women’s participation in politics is socially transformative. Yet women face many barriers to their political participation.
