The discussion of the Congress focused on the conclusions from the report of action and initiatives of the Associations, the steps taken in the participation of women in the collective struggle for their modern needs, for the claim of equal rights in all aspects of life, against social and political forces responsible for women’s inequality, governments and imperialist organizations such as the EU and NATO.
The main goal set by the Congress is the increase of the participation of women in the militant women’s movement, in the trade unions, in the Unions of the self-employed, the Agricultural Associations, the Student Associations.
