I don’t waste my time thinking, “Am I doing it right?” I ask, “Am I doing it?”

The 11th AWID International Forum on Women’s Rights and Development
| 30 October 2007

When people struggle together, what was once unimaginable suddenly becomes possible...

Some of the most profound changes in our world have come about as a result of struggles in the form of social movements. Often, these movements germinated in a handful of people who rose up against an entrenched injustice or for a pressing need, then blossomed into mass mobilizations that have ended up toppling governments, deposing powerful leaders, ending military occupations, and bringing rights and freedoms to millions of people.

This is the power of movements - what people without access to power cannot accomplish alone, they can accomplish together through collective action.

From November 14-17, 2008, up to 1,500 women’s rights activists from around the world will gather in Cape Town, South Africa to debate and strategize about how to build stronger women’s movements globally.

AWID invites you to contribute to this urgent discussion by submitting a proposal to organize a session at the 11th AWID Forum: email or call for more information or a Word version/hard copy of the application form.

Submission deadline: January 28, 2008 at forum08@awid.org
