This page has been designed by the Special Desk for Women&Gender of Mission 21 as a place for networking and exchange of experiences among women. It is a place to empower each other through our stories, memories and visions. To become more aware of the existing injustices and unequal treatments based on gender. To share ways of confronting and transforming them. We want to stimulate reflection on our experiences from a feminist and gender perspective. We urge you to use this space to exchange information, data and tools that contribute to the work in education, healthcare, sustainable agriculture and especially to the work for peace.
