Welcome to WCWS 2024
Welcome to the 10th World Conference on Women’s Studies, which will take place from 30th – 31st May 2024 in Colombo, Sri Lanka (Hybrid Platform), exploring the latest research, ideas, and solutions related to gender equality, women’s empowerment, and social justice. This conference is a unique opportunity to connect with leading scholars, policymakers, and practitioners from around the world, and to engage in a global conversation about the most pressing issues facing women and marginalized communities today.
As we mark the 10th anniversary of WCWS, we reflect on the progress that has been made in advancing gender equality and women’s rights, and the challenges that still lie ahead. From the persistent gender pay gap to the ongoing fight for reproductive justice, we are reminded of the urgent need for collective action and transformative change. Through a range of dynamic and engaging sessions, this conference will provide a platform for sharing ideas, forging new partnerships, and generating innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. We invite you to join us in this exciting and thought-provoking event, and to be part of the global movement towards a more equitable and just society.
