Over the course of history, Women have played some of society’s most significant roles. While in today’s world we like to believe that there is equality between Women and Men, our society shows that this idea is not completely true. The Bengali Women’s Forum (BWF) was founded on various fundamental principles: equity for equality, equal opportunity, and opportunity for well-being. BWF believes that it is imperative to ensure collaboration and community among Women for progress to occur. Based out of Charlotte, North Carolina, BWF provides constructive programming around current affairs, social concerns, personal and professional development, as well as informal gatherings, all of which are designed to strengthen and nurture connections among communities across the greater city. BWF is driven by the moto, “Aamrai Poriborton, we are the change.” And being the change that this society wants to see, BWF strives to address the many burning issues that are affecting Women and Men in Charlotte. It was built to provide services around the current events, social issues and development to strengthen and nurture connections among the community
Our goal is to identify key issues (for example, health, social welfare, education, barriers to equal opportunity) affecting Women and Men and find the avenues to remediate the same.
