Interview with Silvana Koch-Mehrin – Co-founder and CEO of Women in Parliaments Global Forum
[Brussels, 19 September 2014] This Summer, the European Women’s Lobby (EWL) Communications and Policy Assistant Elena Brolis and Fundraising Coordinator and Policy Officer Serap Altinisik were visiting the head office of Women in Parliaments Global Forum (WIP) in Brussels to have an interview with Silvana Koch-Mehrin, WIP Co-founder and CEO.
The EWL, which campaigns for 50/50 – parity in all EU institutions and which is lobbying for more women in decision-making positions since almost 25 years, is curious to receive firsthand information and testimonies about the worldwide network of women parliamentarians. Silvana Koch-Mehrin, also former member of the European Parliament (MEP), welcomed the EWL very warmly.
It was a very open and fruitful exchange on how WIP was created and developed, and on how WIP and the EWL will possibly achieve parity in all political power positions across the Globe.
