Connect & Act to end violence against women
By invitation of the Global Network of Women’s Shelters (GNWS), the Dutch Foundation of Women's Shelters and its partners are coordinating the 3rd World Conference of Women’s Shelters to be held from 3rd-6th of November 2015 in The Hague - The Netherlands.
Although previous conferences were very successful but continuous action is crucial: violence against women and children continues on a large scale and is perhaps the largest crime against humanity of all times. The Conference objectives and programme will therefore be extremely challenging and thought provoking.
During the run-up to the conference we will build a broad, new alliance to end violence against women and children with the help of ambassadors from politics (or governments), companies, NGOs and others. We recently initiated an innovative project promoting safety for women with the 'Act with your Heart' campaign which will be promoted further throughout the conference.
We kindly invite you to join us by filling in the registration form (click here).
