Continental/regional networks and a network of First Nations Women’s Shelters form the heart of the Global Network of Women’s Shelters.
These networks differ in their stage of development: some of them are established networks, others just started. All networks had a continental meeting at the 3rd World Conference of Women’s Shelters in November 2015. The Asian and European Network had their (pre)conference a day before the World Conference in the Hague. The MENA network and the First nations Women’s shelters network joined GNWS during the conference in 2015.
Chair of GNWS is Chi Hui Jung from Taiwan.
