It was a privilege to be a parliamentary clerk for the first ever #WomenMPsoftheWorld conference in Westminster. Here I am with @yasminaouegnin MP from Côte d’Ivoire 🇨🇮. As women, we have to ensure that we are represented throughout the global political structure✨
Hoy participamos en #WomenMpsOfTheWorld en donde reafirmamos el compromiso de seguir aportando al empoderamiento de la mujer en cargos estratégicos para el Estado, propiciando el ejercicio pleno de la autonomía para la incidencia en asuntos de la esfera pública y privada.
As 100 women MPs from across the world gather in Parliament to mark #Vote100 it’s time to challenge the misogynistic backlash that tries to silence women who speak out #WomenMPsOfTheWorld @Independent @IndyVoices https://t.co/p4KIsJrG2K

Amazing! #WomenMPsOfTheWorld are now queuing up to sign a petition started by @vickyford calling on social media companies to help them end online abuse & violence against women in politics. Clear consensus today that this is a priority issue affecting women across the world✊♀
Today, 🇨🇦 boasts the highest percentage of women MPs in our history w/ approx. 27% & we continue to work to ensure more women participate & share their voices.

@PrincessKZulu is the very definition of resilience. Having overcome several adversities, including the stigma of living with HIV, she's risen to become an MP for one of the biggest constituencies in Zambia. She is indeed a trailblazer #TogetherWeBuild #WomenMPsoftheWorld https://t.co/70fthI1ynz
