Woman up! for the European elections

FEPS office, Brussels

The seminar will be organised with the Fondation Jean Jaurès in a small circle and will have the aim to serve as an exchange of ideas between the PES Women Executive members and the invited speakers with both theoretic and practical experience on the mobilisation of women. The speakers were kindly asked to focus on two major issues. One of them is the presentation of (until so far not widely acknowledged) insights, good practices, strategies that could be relevant for preparing for the European elections. The other one is the identification of and fighting against some of the incorrect myths that are linked to women as a target group for political parties.
