“More women in parliaments!” – that’s the goal of the Helene Weber College (HWC). Whether it’s the Bundestag, federal state parliaments or city and district assemblies, women remain under-represented there. The HWC is helping to change that. The college and the Helene Weber Prize were again included in the coalition agreement for 2018-2021 and efforts are underway to consolidate the HWC programme. The development and further development of this programme is based on the scientific knowledge resulting from the surveys conducted among elected female representatives in local government and female and male full-time mayors, as well as on the evaluation of activities undertaken to date.
