To achieve true equality for women, traditional perspectives in Taiwanese society must change, said
Linda Liu on Tuesday.
Liu is the president of the National Council of Women of Taiwan, Republic of China, which is affiliated with the International Council of Women (ICW), an internationally recognized women’s organization.
For the first time, Taipei will host the ICW’s International Conference, which has adopted “Transforming Society through Women’s Empowerment” as its triennial theme for 2015 to 2018.
The international conference is slated for Nov. 14, during which distinguished speakers will be present.
The council said it hoped to welcome President Tsai Ing-wen, whose attendance had yet to be confirmed.
The ICW’s triennial autumn board meeting will also be held in Taipei from Nov. 12 to Nov. 13. Two days after the international conference — on Nov. 15 and 16 — the ICW will be holding its Executive Committee Meeting. [FULL STORY]
