Political Titans

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Women with long political careers bring their collective experience to WOW in this talk.

From Prime Minister Theresa May to Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and unsuccessful American presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, double standards in the portrayal of male and female politicians is rife.

Older men are held up as ‘political titans’ whereas women are judged on their appearance and domestic life, or simply overlooked.

Hear from women with long careers in politics, as they highlight the powerful force of older women in political campaigning and party politics.
