Share your story at the Future of Women 2021

We are all storytellers: being a storyteller is part of what makes us human, distinguishing us from other living beings. The 4th International Conference on Future of Women 2021 strives to bring together storytellers from our attendees that help us learn about each other outside of the framework of a formal conference paper.

In the spirit of the ongoing work of global women’s movements, this storytelling session will take place within the Conference. All our attendees, from women activists, men as allies, advocates, academics, leaders, journalists, independent researchers, and NGOs that support women, girls and planetary well-being, have an opportunity to share your story.

The storytelling session of the Future of Women 2021 offers you the opportunity to share your story in the following categories and modes of presentation:


Success Stories – personal and project achievements, joyful accomplishments

Stories of Struggles – including setbacks, anger, sadness



Documentary films

Short fiction films

Performance art – poetry, song, short dramas


Date: 25th February 2021

Time: 10:40-12:10


The experience of a female activist, her motivations, and actions often differ from men and these differences are unique.  We want women and men to understand the role “gender” plays and to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for advancing gender equality in their daily lives. Thus, throughout this workshop it is intended to discuss about their journey of being the difference today.

Moderator will be updated soon.

We know that sharing your work offers you the opportunity not only to be part of a global Women’s Studies community, but also to advance your careers during the Conference. To keep you more engaged with the Community, the Asian-African Association for Women, Gender and Sexuality (AAWGS) will be hosting a networking dinner to members of the Association. We invite you to spend some quality time with existing and new stakeholders, build new contacts and enhance your academic network during this time. Don’t forget to bring your business cards along with you!

Future Women 2021 will consist of interactive round tables for all participants of the conference. These have always been a fantastic occasion to share opinion and knowledge about different topics in women studies, that we all, one way or another, get to face. Each round table will be facilitated by a moderator, allowing the participants to engage, share their experiences and be inspired by the learning’s and challenges of other.

The round tables will give everyone a chance to meet new people and interact with the attendees at each of the tables to address new topics. Participants are encouraged to select their table according to their interest.
