Panel Discussion 1: How Political Parties Could Increase Gender Equality on the Local and Central Level of the Political Party Organizations. The panel discussed what political parties could and perhaps should do to increase gender equality and promote women’s political leadership within the political parties as organizations. The discussion primarily focused on local and regional levels of the political party organizations, not least considering the upcoming local elections in the fall. However, the actions proposed are also relevant for the central level of political party development towards greater gender equality.
