Irmgard Frank  (Former Vice Chairwoman of the Expert’s  Commission for Women & Gender Desk) was born in 1943. She currently lives in Grenzach-Wyhlen, on the Baden riverside of the Rhine. Her main occupation in the parish sphere and in the parish district, is the work with women, Mission, ecumenism and adult education.

After a women´s trip to Indonesia together with Johanna Eggimann, she began to get fully involved in the work with women of both, the Basel Mission, and Mission 21.
