Women Empowerment

Women empowerment workshop, Turkey.

Our activity, which was organized by a local committee and had nation-wide participation, has sought to accurately explain and discuss the status of women in the society, roles that have burdened with the traditions and women’s health and rights. We aimed to increase the participants (mainly medical students) awareness and raise our voice in every platform by making everybody as aware as possible.

Over the two days 6 guests specialising in different areas talked about the current situation and what we can do to empower women. Between the session, training helped the participants actively discuss the topics. By handing out materials and giving tasks to participants we hoped to create and maintain a sustainable environment for discussing such sensitive topics, not only in such conferences but in every platform.
