"We're getting beyond 'add women and stir.' We're showing that women being involved in climate change, pandemics, food security, and other issues is crucial." – Anna Powles

In October 2020, the world will mark the 20th anniversary of the landmark Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, which addressed the importance of women’s political participation for sustainable peace, among other issues.

This anniversary comes as the coronavirus pandemic continues to upend lives around the globe. For women, these affects are especially acute. In countries both industrialized and developed, women are facing multiple threats - physical, emotional, sexual, and psychological - and even worse in situations of conflict and humanitarian crises; and job loss and economic instability. Complicating matters is the fact that women often have little to no advocates when it comes to making crucial decisions that affect their lives − women make up only 10 percent of national leaders.

What is the situation for women globally? And how has it impacted women’s political leadership? What will women's political demands be worldwide as we cautiously move into a “new normal?" Will anything change?

The livestream will be available at at 7:30 p.m. Have a question? Tweet it to @TheCityClub or text it to 330.541.5794.
