The Spanish Confederation of the Deaf (CNSE) in collaboration with FESORD CV (Federation of deaf people of the Valencian Community) and the EUD Gender Equality Working Group are organising a European Conference on the protection of deaf women's rights and gender equality in Valencia, Spain. It will take place from the 18th to the 20th of October 2018.

The conference is intended to raise awareness of the situation of deaf women in countries whose associations are members of the EUD as well as of the gender policies that are carried out in each National Association. Its purpose will be to create networks of deaf women that facilitate an exchange of information and collaboration between national associations and EUD, as well as to develop a working agenda for the defence of the rights of the deaf women in Europe and the inclusion of the gender perspective in the framework of EUD's work. It aims at ensuring the participation of 2 deaf women for each national member association member of EUD.
