Young women's political participation

As we celebrate International Women's Day, we know that young women's participation in political life remains a challenge. 
How are young women engaging with political processes at European, national and local levels?  What are the main barriers and support mechanism for their participation? Who can be an ally in building a fairer and more inclusive society? 

Guest: Caterina Bolognese (the Head of the Gender Equality Division at the Council of Europe) and Anna Lavizzari (a researcher at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, a member of the Pool of European Youth Researchers).

Hosts: Lana Pasic and Dariusz Grzemny
