Working Group on Women's Public Vision

In 2005, IWPR convened a Working Group on Women’s Public Vision made up of women leaders in politics, religion, social justice, and feminist organizing. This group generated concrete ways to promote women’s values and vision. The first major meeting of the group was held at IWPR’s Eighth International Women’s Policy Research Conference in June, 2005, which also included a series of sessions devoted to IWPR’s research and outreach work in this area.
