PLP to host Women in Politics event

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

The Progressive Labour Party's women's caucus is to host a discussion on their role in politics today.

Topics will include the history, changing role, advantages and the impact of women in elected offices in Bermuda.

A PLP spokesman said: “The event will educate, stimulate and empower the audience.

“The caucus promises that everyone will leave with renewed vigour and pride in the vital role that women have played and continue to play in the evolution and development of Bermuda's democracy.”

Leading women in the PLP over the years have included former premiers Dame Jennifer Smith and Paula Cox, and former Opposition leader Dame Lois Browne-Evans.

The PLP women's caucus was launched in June last year.

The Women in Politics event will take place at the PLP's Alaska Hall headquarters on Hamilton's Court Street from 3pm to 5pm. Limited seating is available.
