The Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) will hold the first ever Asia Pacific Feminist Forum (APFF) on 12-14 December 2011 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This event will bring together 100-150 activists- women lawyers, academics, advocates and youth leaders. It will be an occasion to celebrate our collective achievements, reflect on our challenges and political climates, deepen feminist knowledge and analysis, strengthen our sisterhood, solidarity and collaboration, and reaffirm our resolve to advance women’s rights.
Workshops will be divided into four categories:
1. Knowledge building: to share new scholarship, analysis, and understandings in key areas of challenges confronting the women’s movement in the region
2. Skills building: to share successful strategies and skills in advocacy for reform
3. Movement building: to share successful efforts at building our movement across nations or regions. Discussions on what has worked for the movement.
4. Our well-being: Massage, dance, songwriting workshops, and other creative workshops for our well-being
