We Will Be In NYC for NGO CSW67

Will we see you there?

The global women CSOs’ major event CSW67 & NGO CSW67 will take place from the 6th to the 17th of March, 2023 in New York City in the United States with a primary theme of “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.” This year, NGO CSW67 opens in-person parallel events for organizers to apply after three years when Covid-19 first hit globally.

The Asian Network of Women’s Shelters joins with the Garden of Hope Foundation to host an in-person parallel event on the 10th of March at 10:30 a.m. EST.

Technology-facilitated and digital gender-based violence are increasing across Asia due to rapid digitization. Much of the violence women experience offline is replicated online but has evolved in more complex and diverse forms. Research from the UN indicates that survivors rarely report digital violence in fear of reprisals from perpetrators and social repercussions and a lack of confidence in the judicial process.

CSOs play crucial roles to mediate among stakeholders to tackle this issue. We invite CSOs across Asia to share their experiences, research statistics, and challenges in helping survivors, advocating for legislation reform, and online safety for women and girls.

We will be at New York City to discuss this issue. Please come join us. We will see you there.

2022 ANWS Annual Conference

Resilience: A Path Leading Women Towards Trauma Recovery

The Asian Network of Women’s Shetlers and the Garden of Hope Foundation are pleased to announce that the 2022 ANWS Annual Conference on 02 September, 2022 is now open for REGISTRATION!

We have learned trauma could affect women and children psychologically and emotionally. How we can help guide them to a path towards recovery? What role does resilience play in the recovery? How survivors can manage relationships with self, children, and perpetrators? We invite you to join this conference to hear speakers from Nepal, the U.S., Taiwan, Vietnam, Singapore, and the Netherlands sharing their insights, experiences, challenges and opportunities on relationship repair and resilience among women, children, and intimate partners.

In this conference we bring you not only keynote speeches but also workshops. We hope through this virtual conference audience can be inspired by listening and practicing sharing from speakers.

NGO CSW66, We Are Coming.

ANWS together with the Garden of Hope Foundation in Taiwan will hold a NGO CSW66 parallel event: The Silver Linings and Prospects for Women in Poverty Under the Covid-19 Crisis in Asia on 17 March at 12:00 a.m. ET (please click here for your local time).

As stated in UN Women’s articles women in Asia represent two thirds of the poor. Moreover, it is widely observed that GBV survivors often face economic abuse in addition to physical violence. Taking into account of their financial situations, survivors may find it hard to be independent, especially victims often have children with them to care for when they are accommodated into a shelter. How CSOs in Asia can help empower GBV survivors in economic means and access better employment opportunities is what we want to discuss in this parallel event.
