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.
