World Assembly for Women: WAW! 2022
Special Session: WAW! Sit-in-a-circle Meeting on Rural Women
Sit-in-a-circle is a session to listen to the voices of people living in various regions. We hope to utilize the voices of people in rural areas for government policies. At WAW!2022, we will connect WAW! satellites venues in Hokkaido, Aomori, Fukushima, and Wakayama to Tokyo venue in order to deepen the dialogue on the issues and best practices for women in rural areas.
