Women's Parliamentary Debate: Raising Voices For Change

 Funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), Raising Voices For Change is CPA UK’s virtual parliamentary debate, united women parliamentarians across the Commonwealth to stand together, to celebrate Commonwealth Day and share their thoughts around International Women's Day.

Hosted by Seyi Akiwowo, Founder and Executive Director of Glitch and Hon Maria Miller MP, UK Parliament, the debate heard from women parliamentarians on the following questions:

• How can we work together to challenge online harms faced by women parliamentarians?
• How can we ensure equal access to political participation?
• What progress have we seen in gender-sensitive legislation towards tackling gender-based violence?

During the debate, inspiring pledges were shared, creating an empowering and supporting environment, which will inform upcoming activities.

Let us continue to stand together and raise our voices for change!
