MEP Marietje Schaake, together with the Women in Parliaments Global Forum (WIP) and Facebook, has the pleasure to invite you to the:
Launch of the WIP-Harvard-Facebook report “Social Media: Advancing Women in Politics?”
Social media isn’t just revolutionizing how people connect with their friends and families. It’s also transforming how politicians – male and female - work, campaign and interact with their constituents. 
The study conducted by the Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy, analyses how women in politics use social media for launching 
and sustaining successful political careers. It includes survey answers from female politicians from 107 countries. 
This event discusses the findings of the study and how social media can be used more effectively by all legislators.
  • Presentation of the report by Thomas Patterson, author of the study and Bradlee 
  • Professor of Government and the Press at Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center
  • Discussion with female MEPs
  • Networking lunch
Join us for a dynamic and informative discussion moderated by Brian Maguire, EurActiv!
