There is a red tent movement that creates safe places for women to be women. Midwives and other women are creating red tents for birthing, for women's conferences, and for gathering places for women to share on a deep level.
I am Chair of Global Outreach for the Sophia Women's World Conference in Sofia, Bulgaria, May 25-29, 2010. We are working on bringing a red tent to this conference as well as helping women around the world hold a Sophia conference in their local community May 25-29, 2010. The Sophia Women's World Conference illuminates and implements UN "living documents" through multi-partnerships for gender equality and a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world.
The AIDS crisis in many places in the world is an issue that the red tent setting can provide a safe place to share best practices. This is just one of the many ways that the Sophia Women's World Conference will help make a difference locally and globally. All are welcome to be part of this journey. website is http://sophia2010.org.
