INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF ROMANI WOMEN: THE OTHER WOMEN
From DROM KOTAR MESTIPEN ROMANI ASSOCIATION OF WOMEN
we inform you that on October, 8, 9 and 10 the International Congress of Romani women: The other women will take place in Barcelona .
This Congress is committed to responding to the dream of working with all Romani women in the creation of a dialogical and transformative space to eradicate all the difficulties that we, as Romani women, face. Frequently, we suffer a triple exclusion for being women, for being Romà and for not having academic qualifications. If we talk and put together our efforts we can contribute to overcome these inequalities.
With this congress we especially pretend to give voice to all Romani women without academic qualification that usually do not participate in the main discussion and decision forums.
All the information related to the conference is already available in the following webpage: http://dromkotar.wordpress.com. You may find all the related information in it as well as the process to receive a grant.
We also want to inform you that all the guidelines to work with all women on the topics of the Conference are available from now until its beginning. Thus, it will be easy to promote the direct participation of all the incoming women and to start previous discussions to the conference in each of the territories.
The main idea is that we can share online all the previous conclusions to the conference in a platform that we designed. You can get access to it through the Congress webpage. Those of you interested on participating in this platform please send to us an e-mail and the password will be forwarded to you. Thank you to it, we all can prepare the working groups and discussions of the Congress. We are sure that these discussions will change the current social policy and they will improve the situation of our people in Europe .
We encourage you to disseminate this congress among all the women of your territory you know and to organize big groups of participants. Any woman interested to come should have the opportunity to do it. Please, extend this information to all of your social networks in order to be a before-and-after in our history. We all win.
Bear in mind that the deadline to get registered ends on September, 24th as well as the grant application process.
We look forward to meeting you all in Barcelona !
To anything you need, please do not hesitate to contact us,
Ana Contreras Fernandez
President Drom Kotar Mestipen - Romani Association of Women
