The WaE Network comprises of a range of practitioners, civil society activists and researchers from all over the world. The network aims to act as an online 'safe space' to facilitate discussion between members. As such, the forum is private, with content remaining invisible to external audiences. Membership approval is granted by an administrator on the basis of suitability with the objectives of the network and to individuals, not organisations or institutions. This will allow for honest dialogue while maintaining the independence of members.
