BPW International continue to pursue the dream of our Founder, Dr. Lena Madesin Phillips, which state in her speech in 1931 that

“Cooperation among all people cannot remain a dream, but something that must become actuality if our civilization is to survive.  We cannot afford to wait long in this changing and changed world.  It is now – not in the next century or even in the next generation, but now – that we and the men and women of all nations, must recognize that no man live unto himself

no country can live unto itself.”

This Congress will be a historical event in itself.  BPW International 87 years history, this is the 2nd time that our world Congress will be held in Africa.  The first time was 26 years ago in Niarobi, Kenya 1991. This is also the first time that it will be held in an Arab States Country. 

Moreover, 2017 is also Egypt Year of Women.  Perfect timing.
