WI-team in action at the ITUC women's conference - 20 October

Close to 500 women from all over the world gathered in the Belford Hotel in Brussels yesterday for the ITUC First World Women Conference. Just around the corner of the entrance of the hotel is a small room, packed with people, but almost nobody speakers. 

A dozen journalists of the WageIndicator from four continents work here on four conference websites in English, Spanish, Russian and Portuguese. Some rush out to make pictures of the woman of the morning or the woman of the afternoon. There was a section called 'woman of the night', but that was changed for political reasons into 'woman of the evening". 

The sites are available from this English site. Later this week, the conference will move and focus on the Decisions for Life project. You can also follow the proceedings at twitter @ITUCwomen.
