For only the second time, the Dignity International Conference will be held outside of Canada, when Perth hosts the event from 22-24 May, 2017 at the Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle, Western Australia.

This conference will be a significant milestone for the Women’s Council as we celebrate 40 years (1977-2017) of bringing ‘dignity’ back into the lives of women and children who have survived family and domestic violence.

International speakers, and performers from Canada, Aotearoa (NZ), Sweden, and Australia will be invited to make this an occasion to remember by sharing with us the many and diverse ways women and children resist violence.


‘Dignity’ is about bringing dignity to the forefront of human service and social justice work.
