2nd International Conference On Women’s Rights & Empowernment

Join us for a conference on Women’s Rights & Empowerment to celebrate International Women’s Day.

This conference aims to create a stronger international network to strengthen our collective voice against issues that affect women, including gender-based violence and discrimination, and to work towards a world in which all women have access to quality health care, education and equal opportunity.
At DCI, we understand that empowering women, not only changes their life, but also improves the health and economy of communities, countries, and the whole world. DCI believes education, health care, changing gender norms is essential to promoting the rights of the girl child.
