Women around the globe are perceived and treated differently. While they all share the same nature – notwithstanding some degrees of differences in skin and colour, height and weight, looks and hair, women as objects and subjects of the past now take new roles in the family and society. Gone are the days that women are stereotyped as weak, home-based, and fragile. Today, they have taken an active role and meaningful stake of responsibility, command and power from their male counterparts – lest for conservative notion that the world is really a man’s world. In the Association of South East Asian Nations ASEAN Women’s Network (AWN), women leaders galvanise their ranks, clear the roadmap to success, and direct all efforts towards a gender-friendly ASEAN community. This is the concerted efforts and response of women leaders from Education International affiliates to challenges and demands of the changing time.
