2 Why a National Women’s Summit? “Women’s Self Reliant Leadership and Collective Empowerment in Times of Crises” October 2009, Miriam College, Quezon City  The economic and financial crises have placed vulnerable economies such as ours on the brink of bankruptcy; environmental threats such as climate change are increasingly endangering communities, families’ and women’s well-being; our human rights, democratic institutions and systems of governance have been seriously eroded and undermined by massive corruption and mismanagement  What should be our response and what are our priority issues in times of crises? How can NGOs strengthen their solidarity so that it can harness its collective strengths in the face of these crises?

3 Objectives  To critically assess our gains fifteen years after Beijing focusing on best practices and innovative programs and collectively think of strategies and innovative approaches to sustain and broaden such gains.  To identify key challenges and constraints that continue to impede women’s campaign for political transformation towards gender equality and empowerment.  To actively and concretely respond to persistent as well as new and emerging threats such as the current financial crisis and its impact on women’s well-being; climate change; feminization of migration; violence against women and women’s well- being, among others. “Women’s Self Reliant Leadership and Collective Empowerment in Times of Crises” October 2009, Miriam College, Quezon City
