On 10 and 11 November 2021, the WUCWO European Regional Conference took place in Spain, as a hybrid event. Araceli Cavero, Vice President for Europe, invited women from WUCWO member organisations to discuss and learn about the theme of discrimination and violence against women.
These two days were enlightened by the prayer of the participants and marked by interesting activities: a conference on violence in the Bible, courageous and moving personal testimonies, a look beyond the borders of Europe with the work carried out for many years in Peru following the exactions of the Shining Path, and fruitful exchanges in workshops.
The representatives of UNESCO, the FAO and the Council of Europe detailed the work of these bodies, explaining that the violence suffered by women also has an important impact on the educational, economic, nutritional and political levels. María Lía Zervino, WUCWO President General, participated in the conference, calling on the participants to take action.
