Events

WLP’s events bring together women’s rights activists, scholars, and influential women leaders from around the world to discuss major challenges facing women and girls in the Global South. They provide a platform for discussion and sharing of grassroots, national, and regional strategies on topics such as women’s political participation, culture and religion, movement building, and peace and conflict resolution.
