Women’s Rights: Turn The Tide
Join the Women’s Networking Zone in Washington D.C. to “make waves” and “turn the tide”! As a coalition of more than 50 national and global partners, the WNZ is building on a decade of women’s parallel organizing at International AIDS Conferences – and our success rests on your participation.
The Women’s Networking Zone will be in the Global Village (adjacent to the food area) at the International AIDS Conference and it is free and open to the public! Look for our “visible panty line” and be a part of the heart of women’s organizing.
There will be a full and vibrant program of non-stop dialogues, strategy sessions, documentaries, panel discussions, and interactive art installations. Our program is available here.
For more information on how you can get involved in the Women’s Networking Zone, including volunteering to staff the zone during the conference, or funding itswork, please email at email@example.com.
