III International Congress on Women
| APOSTOLATE | NEWS
The Institute of Higher Studies on Women is organizing the third international congress at the Convention Center in Castel di Guido, Rome.

II FCongreso de la Mujer en Roma
Rome will host the III International Congress on Women March 6th-8th.
Rome will host the III International Congress on Women March 6th-8th organized by the Institute of Higher Studies on Women at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum, analyzing the integral role of women within today´s culture and society.

The program will begin with a seminar held at the Castel di Guido Convention Center (Rome) entitled "Women, Family and Human Development." This will provide an opportunity for the participants to reflect on the role women play in the building of families and the integral formation of its members. What is the future of the family? What values are the foundation of today´s families? What is the family currently evolving into and what role do women play within it? These are just a few of the questions that the seminar seeks to investigate.

The seminar will feature diverse activities such as workshops, personal testimonies, talks, as well as moments for the attendees to rest and converse with one another.

The second day of the congress will be held at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum and will highlight a conference on "Sexuality and Feminine Self-Esteem" with international experts leading the discussion. They will focus on the identity of women in relation to their sexual development and maturation from a philosophical, psychological and religious perspective.

The goal of the Institute of Higher Studies on Women is to promote a new concept of feminism that defends the rights of women without destroying what makes them unique -- the "feminine genius", as the Holy Father calls it -- and that exalts the richness that femininity contributes to building the civilization of love.
