When you network, you are helping to create the social change that will eventually end violence against women and their children! Networking helps us identify common barriers and opportunities, and, enables us to collaborate more effectively as the voice of women's shelters and women experiencing violence.

At our 2nd World Conference of Women's Shelters  It provides an amazing opportunity to network and organize with others from your region of the world! For example:

Women's shelter networks need your voice to be included.

Do you know if your region already has a network of women's shelters? Or, are you helping your region to create one and need to reach out to more shelters? GNWS'purpose is to unite the women's shelter movement globally to end violence against women and their children. To do that effectively, we need strong and creative regional representation.

Want to look for other women's shelters and domestic violence service agencies in your region or country? One online resource that might help is: Hot Peach Pages's International Directory of Domestic Violence Agencies
