12th AWID International Forum on Women’s Rights in Development
BRIDGE is delighted to attend the 2012 the Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID) Forum from 19 to 22 April at the Haliç Congress Center in Istanbul, Turkey. This 12th AWID International Forum will gather up to 2000 women’s rights leaders and activists from around the world to discuss ‘Transforming Economic Power to Advance Women’s Rights and Justice’. This forum is particularly exciting as both a conference and a call to action by bringing diverse voices to strategise, network, celebrate and learn, and re-politicise the gender and development community.
