OUR VISION

We believe that women’s health can be improved by focusing on women’s status within society at large, and through the application of “gender equality and equity” to each aspect of life.

OUR MISSION

With the collaboration of related university departments, units, and relevant members of the public sector our aim is to:

  • Create sensitivity about women's issues and carry out advocacy activities
  • Disseminate information about national and international research on women’s issues
  • Conduct research on areas parallel to our objectives
  • Promote educational activities
  • Integrate gender issues into activities and programs
  • Support the studies/activities conducted by other gender-oriented programs

OUR ACTIVITIES

Our belief is that women should participate in public life as independent individuals, and express their own thoughts, demands and problems. Therefore, our Center participates in:

  • The organization of national and international courses, seminars, conferences, congresses, and symposiums
  • Educational activities to motivate students to engage in gender issues
  • The preparation of publications
  • The organization of a library literature center specific to gender issues,
  • A communication network between national and international organizations to publicize the work of women’s organizations and institutions
  • The provision of support and counseling to relevant institutions.
