The role of parliaments in advancing gender equality through technology
The joint IPU – UN Women Parliamentary Meeting “The role of parliaments in advancing gender equality through technology” will aim to showcase and further strengthen parliamentary engagement in harnessing technology to advance gender equality both in society and within their institution. It will also provide an opportunity for legislators worldwide to bring a parliamentary perspective into the CSW 67 discussions.
Members of Parliament from around the world will share good practices for empowering women and girls through technology, removing structural obstacles that hinder women’s access to and use of technology and addressing risks such as technology-facilitated violence against women and girls. Participants will also exchange with their peers and experts on how to deepen their work in these areas. Discussions will include ways of harnessing the potential of technology to make parliament’s working modalities ever more inclusive and gender-sensitive.
