The Global Women’s Conference is a one-day event drawing awareness to and addressing issues that impact women globally. Women and girls all over the world are experiencing various forms of discrimination, low self-esteem and abuse. Given the imposed cultural, religious, political and social obstacles placed before them, no matter in what region of the world a woman or a girl lives, she deserves at minimum to exercise her birthrights; to live in peace, with dignity and the freedom to dream and access all that will enhance her life and the lives of her family.
Speakers will focus on the following topics: Cancer & Sickle Cell, Diet & Obesity, Relationships, Financial Literacy, Media Pressure-Self Esteem and Spirituality. They will address the impact of such topics on women and girls and how it eventually affects the entire family; bearing in mind that although they have been overlooked by society, women are the pillars that hold the family together. Mothers and their young daughters will be empowered with self-esteem and in reaching their full potential in life.
