SAWEEN

SOUTH ASIAN WOMEN ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT NETWORK

– TOGETHER WE MOVE FORWARD

South Asian Women Economic Empowerment Network (SAWEEN) is aimed at bringing together academia, philanthropists, NGOs and professional women with South Asian origin to work for the socio-economic empowerment of women. SAWEEN focusses on South Asian women irrespective of their country of residence to join hands for moving forward and advocate their case effectively in front of governments and policy makers.

Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily this is not difficult.
