ACRE Women's Meeting
Women's voices in the future of Europe?

Europe is going through some changes. The membership of the EU is changing with the withdrawal of the UK from the Union. We are also seeing political parties come to power that are questioning the status-quo. This panel will look at the voices of women in the future of our continent and look at how as Conservatives we can continue to empower both men and women in shaping our continents future.
