More than fifteen years have passed since the launch of the East-West women’s network MILENA. Originally cooperating with cities in Central Europe, especially in Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, the network has expanded its activities to cities within the entire European Union and beyond.
FemCities has taken over from the MILENA network: FemCities - European cities networking for gender equality.
