On 02 December 2022, in the 10th anniversary of its establishment, the 21st Meeting of the Inter-University Communication Network Against Sexual Harassment and Attacks will take place.

We cannot solve global challenges unless women participate fully in efforts to find solutions. The aim of the Congress is to undertake interdisciplinary and international comparisons of studies, viewpoints and discussions of the subject matters “Woman” and “global challenges” by scientists and researchers who will participate from various different locations of Turkey and the world. During this International Congress the place and significance of women within the spheres of family, law, science, art, politics, culture and socio-economy throughout the ages will be assessed in context of interdisciplinary studies involving women in throughout Turkey and the world. This conference concentrate on the twelve critical areas of concern identified in the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995: The burden of poverty on women, unequal access to education and training, inequalities and inadequacies in and unequal access to health care and related services, violence against women, the effects of armed or other kinds of conflict on women, including those living under foreign occupation, inequality in economic structures and policies, inequality between men and women in the sharing of power and decision-making at all levels, insufficient mechanisms at all levels to promote the advancement of women, lack of respect for and inadequate promotion and protection of the human rights of women, stereotyping of women and inequality in women's access to and participation in all communication systems, especially in the media, gender inequalities in the management of natural resources and in the safeguarding of the environment, and persistent discrimination against and violation of the rights of the girl child. Female participation in the private sector is a crucial economic driver for societies worldwide. Economic security benefits every facet of a woman's life, with positive effects on the health, education and vitality of families.
