WCWS 2023

Welcome to the 9th World Conference on Women’s Studies 2023 which will take place from the 11th – 12th May 2023 in Thailand. We hope the WCWS 2023 unites diverse scholars, researchers, activists, academics, and policymakers from all over the world, in parallel sessions while offering many networking and publishing opportunities.

Purpose of WCWS 2023

The purpose of the World Conference on Women’s Studies is to offer participants an enriching opportunity to deepen knowledge of global feminisms along with the theoretical, policy, and personal dimensions of Women’s Studies scholar-activism worldwide, engaging with intersecting fields of Gender and Sexuality Studies and the many disciplines that constitute Women’s Studies—all toward building collaborative partnerships, offering publishing opportunities, and enacting visions of a more equitable and liberal world.
