Conversations on Europe: 100 Years of Women's Suffrage: Women in Europe Today

For the first installment of Conversations on Europe for 2018-2019 academic year, we had an interactive virtual roundtable discussion of women’s participation in politics in Europe 100 years since women first began to gain the right to vote. Our panel of experts provided historical context and discussed how the past informs the present European political landscape.
