Everybody is welcome.  This is part of the Rights of Women: London's Pioneers in their Own Words exhibition and events season at Senate House Library. The aim is to give women's voices a platform and a legacy through the Library's 'Continuing Her Story' engagement programme. All those attending will be invited to participate in debating the four main themes which are explored in the exhibition: -   Empowering through Protest and Politics  -   Leading through Learning  -   Working for Justice -   Controlling Mind and Body Each theme will be presented by an inspirational speaker ending with a proposition that will be debated by the floor for about 15 minutes. Each short debate will culminate in a vote on the proposition.  *More details about the event format & announcement of speakers leading the debate will be released nearer the time* The event highlights the importance of an inclusive gender-balanced parliament, that draws upon the widest possible pools of talent, including men and women equally, incorporating their full range of diversity and experience. 50:50 Parliament drives the mission by encouraging, inspiring and supporting political engagement, particularly from women. In addition, 50:50 Parliament lobbies Parliament and the political parties to be more inclusive of women.  ------ A Women's Parliament at Senate House Library Timings: 6.00 - 8.30pm ending with a short reception Location: Periodicals Room, Senate House Library FREE. REGISTRATION REQUIRED - book your place here: https://womenparliament.eventbrite.co.uk (or click button above) Periodicals Room, Senate House Library Senate House Library noreply@senatehouselibrary.ac.uk Europe/London public
