WOMEN'S WORLD 2011 CONVERSATION

Date: 
Sunday, July 3, 2011 - 16:00 to Thursday, July 7, 2011 - 16:00

WW 2011 is a chance to shore up our collective wisdom to tackle a wide range of issues as they relate to women, including violence against women, health, education, poverty, security, spirituality/theology, culture/arts, war/conflict/peace, (im)migration, environment, economics, employment, political representation, sexualities, and rights

Each of the four days of the congress will be guided by an overarching theme:

        i.            Breaking Cycles

      ii.            Breaking Ceilings

    iii.            Breaking Barriers

    iv.            Breaking Ground

Presenters representing academia, activism, policy development, research, arts, culture, and beyond will promote ideas-sharing, knowledge-transfer, and solutions. Along with the congress as a whole, they will ask:

In the face of globalization and all that it means, how can we combine our collective strengths in order to:

a) Mount effective challenges to the dominant attitudes that perpetuate inequality

b) Highlight and share our successes and strategies

b) Amplify women’s voices and ideas within the discourse on globalization

WW 2011 will also be a chance to move beyond discussion — to connect and reconnect around common strategies and political agendas so that women’s equality and human rights may truly advance.
