The IIIrd Congress was held under auspices of the vice-marshal of Silesian Province – Aleksandra Skowronek, the member of Polish Parliament  - Miroslawa Nykiel and the rector of The university of Dąbrowa Górnicza – prof. dr. Zdzislawa Dacko-Pikiewicz.     The Congress was to discuss what the women everyday space is. The participants wanted to answer the following questions: What does the space consist of? In the fast media world  of consumerism and globalization is there any space for empathy, reflexion or considering our choices? The issues of courage, taking challenges, protesting against injustice but also women of success, their passions, activities and self-esteem were mentioned during the meetings. These talks were supposed to enrich the participants upon new experiences and broaden their views.

The IIIrd Women Congress is an event, which contributes to a project realized as a part of an operation program financed by the state budget. We received the financial support after a long time of negotiations and we are proud of the fact that the project is called ‘Cieszyńskie on High- heels: Cieszyn Silesia’s Women Activation in Public Life’ –emphasized Rojowska.
