The WPL Annual Global Summit 2017 is currently taking place in Harpa concert hall and conference center in Reykjavík. The Women Political Leaders Global Forum (WPL) is the global network of female politicians, and the 2017 summit is hosted in cooperation with the Althingi – Iceland’s Parliament – and the Government of Iceland.
The Conference is attended by more than 300 women parliamentarians and other senior politicians from nearly 100 countries. The Summit takes place under the special aegis of Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, the world’s first woman president. Finnbogadóttir, elected in 1980 by Icelanders, served longer as president than any woman from any country.
