A DEBATE has been held to explore how gender equality can be achieved in Gibraltar.

Chaired by MP Marlene Hassan-Nahon and her Together Gibraltar civil platform, the evening acted as an opportunity to gather and then relay the opinions of Gibraltarians to parliament.

Speeches were given by feminist activist Conchita Triay, Tamsin Suarez of the Gibraltar Women’s Association and Nyree Turnock, of pressure group ‘No Means No’.

“These issues have been high on the agenda in recent months, and we believe it is important these ideas are expressed and debated locally, in person, and in an atmosphere that is friendly and welcoming,” Hassan-Nahon said.
