Connect & Act to End Violence against women

On request of the Global Network of Women’s Shelters (GNWS), the Dutch Foundation of Women's Shelters and its partners organise the 3rd World Conference of Women’s Shelters from 3-6 November 2015 in The Hague - the Netherlands. 

Previous conferences were successful but continuous action is crucial: violence against women and children still occurs on a large scale and is perhaps the largest crime against humanity of all times. The objectives and programme therefore are very ambitious and thought-provoking.

In addition, we are building a broad, new alliance in the run-up to the conference to end violence against women and children with the help of ambassadors  from politics, companies, NGOs and others. Another example of concrete actions and projects we initiate, is the ‘Act with your Heart’  campaign.

We kindly invite you to join us by filling out your registration (click here).
