We would like to send out a big thank you to everyone who was part of the 4th World Conference of Women’s Shelters (4WCWS), held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan on November 5-8, 2019. A powerful and inspiring event like 4WCWS would not have been possible without the collective efforts of everyone who attended.
Whether you gave a plenary speech, spoke at a workshop or side event, hosted a booth, helped raise funding to support the scholarship program, volunteered behind the scenes, organized a delegation from your country or organization, or came to learn and network, we are very grateful for your contribution.
In line with the theme of the conference, “solidarity•impact”, we are very eager to see the energy and solidarity from 4WCWS transformed into a lasting legacy of meaningful actions. To this end, we launched a Global Helplines Project, which will continue to grow and develop beyond the 59 countries that submitted data during 4WCWS.
We were also encouraged by our sisters from Hong Kong in their fight against oppression and sexual violence, and we were inspired by visions of a future free of violence, oppression and exploitation. We hope you will continue with us to work in support of these efforts so that we can make a real impact together.
Now we want to hear back from you on what you liked about 4WCWS as well as the areas where we could improve, to help us design future gatherings. So please take a few minutes fill out the short satisfaction survey that has been delivered to your inbox. The form can be completed in English, Japanese, Korean and Chinese.
