Discussion Seminar on Gender and Care Work in Lebanon
YWCA || Thursday, July 16, 2009

Dear friends and colleagues,

CRTD.A is pleased to invite you to its first interactive discussion seminar entitled: “Gender and Care Work: A contribution to the Lebanese economy”. This seminar is organized in partnership with UNIFEM-Arab States Sub-Regional Office and within the framework of the Women’s Political Leadership and Economic Empowerment for Peace Building Programme.

The seminar will be held on Wednesday, 16th of July from 9:30 am to 13 pm at the YWCA premises in Ain el Mraisseh.

The seminar aims at creating space for interactive discussion on the concept and practice of women’s care work, the ways in which care work is determined by prevailing relations of gender within the household and the community and the contribution of care work towards the economy in Lebanon and towards women’s economic empowerment.

The seminar will be in the form of an interactive discussion and will use specific illustrations from a number of communities. We will be sharing with participants insights and contributions collected from women in these communities on various aspects on care and household work. Participants will be invited to comment and share ideas about these issues.

CRTD.A will share with you potential follow-up to this event.

Kindly confirm your attendance by sending an email to no later than Tuesday 14th of July. For more information, contact Ms. Daad Nasreddine on 01-397813

We look forward to your participation in this exciting event.
