TAIPEI — The International Council of Women (ICW), the oldest international women’s organization in the world, is set to hold its general assembly and executive meeting in Taiwan for the first time ever.
The theme of this year’s executive meeting, which opens on Monday, is “transforming society through women’s empowerment,” Kim Jung-sook, president of ICW, said Taipei.
“This is a very meaningful event,” she said.
With the support of the government, Taiwan has been able to make progress in gender equality and on other gender issues, Kim said in response to questions of why Taiwan was chosen as the host of this year’s meetings.
ICW members also hope to come here to see firsthand and learn more about how Taiwan achieved more participation for women in the political, economic, social and other spheres, she added. [FULL STORY]
