About the Forum

What is the Second Eurasian Women’s Forum?

The Eurasian Women’s Forum is the world’s biggest influential platform for discussing the role of women in contemporary society. It aims to foster collaboration and facilitate an exchange of views on the role and contribution of women in politics, the evolution of the digital economy, innovation in the social sector, environmental security, the strengthening of international cooperation, and the promotion of charitable and humanitarian projects.

The First Eurasian Women’s Forum, held in 2015, provoked a broad public response and acquired a truly global character. It showed the increasing role of women in reinforcing peace and security, solving important socioeconomic and humanitarian problems. Over 1,000 participants from 80 countries unanimously supported the idea of holding the Forum on a regular basis.

The Forum participants are female members of parliament, representatives of the executive authorities, international organizations, business circles, scientific community, public institutions and charity projects, as well as prominent leaders of the international feminist movement from many countries.

You can find additional information in the About the Forum section of the website.
