ABSTRACTS SUBMISSION

Last days: 9 | June | 2024

Woman XXI is not just another conference about women, it is a meeting of ideas, experiences, points of view, questions, debates, heated discussions and sharing of experiences, not only about women, but about the extensive and complex universe of gender. It is a place where the plurality of being a woman in the 21st century is discussed, with all of its nuances and diverse approaches that the theme requires.

An informal and multidisciplinary meeting on a multitude of areas of social life that, in one way or another, gravitate around gender issues and are influenced by them. A favourable moment to holistic and critical views on a group of current and relevant phenomena that concern everyone, and which aims to contribute to the deepening of knowledge on the topics under discussion.

This is a space for sharing specialised knowledge, but also the daily experiences of all those who, for personal or professional reasons, may be interested in this topic.

Once again, Woman XXI | International Conference on Woman opens the door to multidisciplinary dialogue, involving a variety of fields in a debate of common interest: from Medicine to Sociology, through Sports, Nutrition, History, Law, Arts and Architecture; all fields come together in a unique and memorable opportunity to share contributions, experiences and knowledge.

Come and join us in the discussion and follow the news through the hashtag #womanxxi2024
