WoMen Dialogue is a platform provided by KVINFO – the Danish Centre for Research and Information on Gender, Equality and Diversity. WoMen Dialogue supports cooperation and encourages debate and the exchange of knowledge between Danish and Arab civil society on issues relating to gender and women’s rights. WoMen Dialogue offers information to a Danish and an Arabic public.
The site primarily informs about joint partnership activities, but also presents relevant news from Denmark and the Middle East on legal reform processes and community development related to gender, equality and women's rights.
WoMen Dialogue, for the most part, is open and accessible to all but also hosts closed, virtual working groups for individuals and organizations involved in joint partnership projects with KVINFO or in projects financed under the regional program 'Gender and Women’s Rights – Dialogue and Cooperation'
WoMen Dialogue focuses four thematic areas, corresponding to the areas of engagement in KVINFO’s MENA programmes:
- Access to Justice
- Gender Based Violence
- Gender Research and Documentation
- Women's Political and Economic Empowerment
Thus, at WoMen Dialogue, you can read about the diverse work of KVINFO such as support for lobby work for legal reform, for development and establisment of shelters and counselling centres for women victims of violence, for building and strengthening of network between blogging women, establishing of a research library and documentation centre and national databases promoting women experts.
Moreover, WoMen Dialogue Magazine offers articles evolving around the key focus areas, but in a broader sense. In here, you can meet Arab women artists, cultural icons and business top leaders and obtain insight in the issues of au-pair problems in Denmark and domestic workers in the Middle East as well as the role of new media in the public uprisings during the Arab spring 2011
