The conference discussed the socio-economic conditions of working women between their present and their perspectives. It also discussed problems and issues affecting their conditions and their consequences to find mechanisms, suggested by the members themselves, in a serious attempt to present them to the public opinion and decision makers to find solutions for the improvement of working conditions and environment for every Egyptian working woman in all official and unofficial work sectors.
