Motivations for MonitoringMonth – guest post on Gender Avenger blog

“We want to retire the old-fashioned all-male panel to history, where it belongs. If we’re going to progress and make innovative political decisions, we need viewpoints from all representatives of society, not just half.

To ramp up the pressure on event organisers, as well as political and industry figures who take part in panel debates, we are conducting a “monitoring month.”

Throughout June @EUPanelWatch with the support of the European Women’s Lobby and around 20 incredible volunteers, will keep track of events in Brussels across policy areas including foreign affairs, trade and energy. We will tally how many male and female speakers feature at each event and once we have all the data, we will use it to answer some key questions.”
