Women are climbing the highest mountains!
This was the motto of the six-days of the self-organized World Women’s Conference of grassroots women in Kathmandu, Nepal. 1,300 participants from 48 countries took part, including 74 delegates from 40 countries and more than 200 volunteer helpers. In ten workshops, the participants discussed central issues of the women’s movement. Women’s organisations from 61 countries were actively involved in the preparation programme.
„The movement for the World Women’s Conference has become a world women’s movement!“ (Monika Gärtner-Engel, initiator and one of the world coordinators)
During the six days of the conference, a film with English text was posted on the Internet. A German version appeared at the end of 2016.
