International Women's Event Twinning Logo



In March 2010, Musselburgh hosted a conference to celebrate International Women's Day. The conference brought together 16 women from Musselburgh (Scotland), Champigny sur Marne (France), Rosignano Marittimo (Italy) and Pardubice (Czech Republic) to discuss the theme of Child Poverty.

Over the three days there were presentations by each delegation, discussions and visits, most related to the theme.
During a visit to the Scottish Parliament, delegates heard the Scottish Government's position from the Minister of Justice, Kenny McAskill, who is also Musselburgh's MSP.
At another session, a Children's Panel Reporter described how issues relating to Child Poverty are handled at a Children's Panel.
Unfortunately, we have no photos of this conference, but here are some of the previous conference, held in 2005, which followed a similar format.
