An Invitation and Call for Papers
International Conference - University of Sydney, Australia

18-22nd February 2002

Speakers from the Philippines, New Zealand, United Kingdom, India, North America, Vietnam and Australia

This international conference has a particular focus on the Asia-Pacific region and will offer the opportunity to reflect on what is shared by women internationally as we strive to challenge the violence we experience. The sub-title Meanings, Cultures, Difference seeks to challenge singular approaches to theory, policy or practice that are unreflective about the differences between and among women. The conference is aimed at increasing understandings of the complexities of violence against women and extending the repertoire of responses to challenge this violence.
