As a feminist leadership training program for women activists in Asia and Africa, the Ewha Global Empowerment Program (EGEP) had been successfully implemented thirteen times from January 2012 to January 2018, producing more than 270 graduates from 45 countries. To sustain the impact and achievements of EGEP in seven years, the Asian Center for Women’s Studies (ACWS) at Ewha Womans University is now considering entering into a new phase with a more focused vision for women’s empowerment and education in Asia.
For this reason, the 14th EGEP will be held in January 2019 as a special occasion to consolidate the EGEP network and share experience and insights together with committed and passionate EGEP graduates from Asian countries (from the 1st batch to the 13th batch). Especially, during the 14th EGEP, emphasis will be placed on exploring strategic approaches to the four common issues that have been raised as important in the previous EGEPs , including:
- [Education] How to develop gender/sexuality education program for the local community
- [Engagement] How to engage men and boys in the feminist efforts for gender equality
- [Empowerment] How to empower survivors in recovering from suffering and becoming participants in women’s activism
- [Advocacy] How to utilize advocacy tools, such as issue briefs, social campaigns, SNS, etc., for the best purpose of local women’s activism
