On July 23-25, 2004 at the University of Massachusetts at Boston, a coalition of
progressive community organizations, non-profits, and unions will be hosting the Boston
(BSF). A regional forum within the World Social Forum process, the BSF has been
called to help progressive activists begin to answer some very basic questions:
What kind of future do we want for Boston? For our nation? For the world? What is our
vision of a better society?
Through a series of workshops, cultural events, plenary sessions, and giant convocations
of the entire forum, we are encouraging progressive organizations of all kinds to showcase
their best analysis of the present, and their best ideas for the future, across the breadth
of human knowledge - politics, economics, science and
technology, culture and faith - in the context of corporate globalization.
The BSF events are organized
into thematic "tracks" and the Women's International League for
Peace and Freedom along with The Global Peace Initiative of Women, The Global peace Initiative of Religious Leaders,
The Center for New Words, The Brazilian Women's Group, The Association of Haitian Women, STEP, The World March of Women,
Wand, Code Pink and NOW Boston are facilitating the organization of the Women's Web/The Feminist Agenda.
In reality, the Women's Web refers to the creation of several interactive, public
spaces defined by women and informed by women's priorities. In addition, those involved
in planning this track will seek out and nominate qualified female and/or feminist speakers
to the planners of the BSF's other tracks.
The Women's Web/The Feminist Agenda is presenting these program events:
All are welcome to participate in the planning process and organizational partners are
invited to take co-responsibility
for particular events and/or for facilitating the planning
