Under representation of women in politics and public life is a big issue.
Liverpool Liberal Democrats are holding an event on Saturday 11th November, 1pm - 5pm, at the Bridge Chapel, Heath Road, L19 4HR to encourage more women to get involved in politics and public life.
Alongside a number of key note speakers there will be women who have been councillors, school governors and held other roles to talk about their experiences. The event will then open up the discussion and look at some things we can do to encourage more women to become involved in politics and public life.
The room we have hired is big enough for you to bring small children along as long as you are able to supervise them and is easy for access for anyone with disabilities.
The event is open to all women Liberal Democrat members but we would like you to bring along a guest so we can involve as many women to join the Liberal Democrats as possible.
