Trust Women is more than just a conference. It’s a fast-growing movement to put the rule of law behind women’s rights through concrete action.
The annual conference brings together global corporations, lawyers, and pioneers in the field of women's rights to take action and forge tangible commitments to empower women.
In 2014, participants committed to 32 key actions to help empower women globally, including plans to create a global human trafficking hotline and a legal network to end forced sterilization.
In 2015, the Trust Women conference will take place 17-18 November in London. "
