EWL General Assembly

EWL’s 2021 General Assembly

Posted on Updated on

European Women’s Lobby GA

After a year that has affected the lives of all of us, European Women’s Lobby GA is a chance for the members and staff to discuss the disproportionate effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on women and girls. With hopes of this being the last virtual General Assembly, EWL members will reflect on the work achieved in the challenging months behind and discuss ways forward in the midst of a backlash against women’s rights to see how we can mobilise together in the next year to have the greatest impact in advancing women’s and girls’ rights as part of our vision for a Feminist Europe.

We would like to send our best wishes to EWL members as they embark on this important meeting this weekend. This particular GA will be especially relevant, as our Treasurer Annelies Pierrot has finished her period of office as EWL Treasurer and executive board member, her almost 7 years work is much appreciated.

A new Board will be elected and it will coincide with the election of a new President. We wish all the happiness and success to the departing president Gwendoline Lefebvre.

Our Vice President Aisha Alshawaf will be standing for election as representative of UWE on the board of EWL. We support her and wish her all the best .
