HOW IS WOMEN TOGETHER UNIQUE?

 

  • The learning environment is based on peer-to-peer transfer of skills and knowledge, rather than women being passive participants in external learning agendas delivered by external “experts”.  Women themselves are empowered as knowledge-bearers, educators and leaders.
     

  • Women travel to teach and learn from peers in diverse settings. Unlike traditional training models which keep women positioned within the often restrictive social and cultural conditions of their own communities, the experience of travel breaks down barriers to female independence and autonomy.

 

  • Women build both real and digital communities of learning and support, thereby establishing a global presence for women from remote and protected areas who are largely unseen and unheard on the global stage.
     

  • Women build a unique learning environment focused on the sharing of locally relevant, indigenous and community-generated knowledge and skills that address both human development and environmental preservation in underserved areas.

​​

  • Together, women’s groups create technologies that are sustainable, transferable, and environmentally protective.

​​

  • Women build solidarity and peace across racial, ethnic, religious, cultural and national boundaries.

By supporting grassroots women’s groups to travel and connect through regional and global learning exchanges, Women Together supports the direct transfer of knowledge and skills from woman-to-woman, and builds solidarity for the global women’s empowerment movement.
