The first of the Cappadocia Women’s Meeting was organized together with Cappadocia Association for Solidarity with Women in 2008 and since then it has been organized with the participation of more than 1,000 refugee women and children within the scope of International Women’s Day (8 March).

Refugee and asylum-seeking women living in the provinces around the Cappadocia region celebrate International Women’s Day at Cappadocia with the organization of the field offices of SGDD-ASAM and they have an opportunity to meet with the NGOs working on women’s rights as well as the local people. This event is a unique one around the world.
