Deaf women empowerment workshop to be held in Tokyo in September

A workshop to empower Deaf women will be held on Saturday, September 19, 2009, 13:30-16:30 in Tokyo, sponsored by the Lifestyles of Deaf Women.

The Deaf women with degrees from colleges/universities who are employed would experience the barrier in communications at various places such as the office, the home, and the region, etc.

To the majority of the who often swallow their thoughts or want to avoid a trouble with hearing persons in the surroundings, it is noteasy to attempt self-realization.

It may be caused by the assumption that the Deaf women are confronted with the double handicap in a general society, "deafness" and "being a female."

They need a place where they can be empowered to live assertively.

Tentative program:
- Basis of assertiveness
- The pattern of your own communications.
- Points of assertive communications

This workshop is only for Deaf women aged from twenties to forties (student acceptable) .

*Interpreting will be provided.
