Last november, Maggie’s team went to the World Forum for Democracy 2019 that was celebrated in Strasbourg.

This year’s topic was «Is democracy in danger in the information age?» The event was held between the 6th and the 8th of November. The main aim was to realize the first test of the indicators that were choosen according to the literature review and the interviews done to gender experts.

Percentage of women according to their participation in the event

In that event, there were analyzed different aspects used to study the gender gap in a political event of such dimensions. The study was focused in the observation of different elements, as the registration of the number of participants according to their gender in the different sesions, the diferences in time used during their presentations or the differences between questions received depending of the gender of the speaker.

This first approach to the monitorization of a political event will help the team to study the diferences in terms of participation between men and women and to do a test about the initial indicators with the purpose of polish the building of MAGGIE’s tool.
