We have just heard that the conference has been canceled for some unknown reason. It may be done at a later date but I will let you know when we hear more. Sorry.

Maybe they were worried that the meeting (which did seem to be for Egyptian women, social workers, doctors etc) would be hijacked by hordes of European women and couldn't afford translators!
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

Well I'm very confused because I've just read on the Luxor4U facebook page that the conference took place! :ni:

Domestic violence (DV) is much more than a somebody getting smacked about. It is about power and control - physcial, psychological, emotional etc. A conference for women is great but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Not only do women need to be informed so do men and society in general has to come to the conclusion that DV will not be accepted and put appropriate supports in place. DV is an extremely hard cycle to break and one that is almost impossible to break without the help and support of others. Those offering help and support likewise need to be appropriately supportive and understand their role with what they are offering. Enabling helps no one.

Hope the Conference goes ahead. Knowledge is power and communication is essential.

I understand the conference went ahead. Unfortunately I have not read any reports about it. I do know that a reporter who often writes in English was there, that's how I know the conference took place. He seems reluctant to answer any questions about it though. :(

If anyone has read a report about this conference would they please share some information about.
