Femocracy – Are our Democracies failing women?

Democracy is in some sort of crisis world-wide. It is defined as the noblest form of rule -  government of the people, by the people, for the people. But look at any democratically elected parliament, and what you see is “government of the people by a narrow sample of the dominant population” – universally middle aged, middle class (white) men.  What can we do to make our system of government both more representative of, and more accountable to, the 52% majority. WOW Founder Jude Kelly will lead an international panel of those elected to represent us to discuss.
