Committee Room 6, Houses of Parliament
Come to Parliament on 13 May and join the Association of Women Solicitors London and 50:50 Parliament for an inspirational evening being hosted by Rosie Duffield MP with Vicky Ford MP to celebrate one hundred years of women in the law.
A fantastic panel of eminent women lawyers, judges and female MPs will discuss the impact that women lawyers and legislators make and the important role that women play in writing and implementing the law.
This event will highlight how representation shapes policy and demonstrate the importance of including women in the corridors of power.
After the panel event we plan to head on to a local pub for further discussions and networking on an informal and independent basis. All are welcome to join us.
