Welcome to ICGR 2018

This is the first International Conference on Gender Research. Despite some advances being made in the area, topics related to gender research remain pertinent and are gaining momentum in a changing society. It is thus important to empower and to develop research on specific gender topics, in order to acquire a clearer understanding and to obtain important insights.

This conference intends to be established in the cutting edge of gender research and we welcome everyone researching in this area to present their work and to the scientific community.
