Purpose of the women4women website

We are working to support and encourage women to become involved in the social, cultural and economic life of the community, by creating an online space for sharing information and ideas, via this website and soon also via Twitter and Facebook.

In addition, the women4women website provides specific information for women in various languages.  The sections on ‘Migrant Women’ and ‘Violence Against Women’ are available in English, French, Polish, Russian and Chinese.

We hope you find this website useful.  It is a work in progress and, as such, we would welcome any feedback or suggestions you might have.
