who we are.

The International Women in Power (IWP) initiative founded on

March 8th, 2011,  marking the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day (IWP), stands for universal women's and girls' rights, equality and equal professional opportunities for women and men.


Our goal is for women not only to campaign for equal opportunities in Germany, but also for their countries of origin and all other countries in which equality, the rights of women, girls and children, as well as human rights are not observed.


The initiative was launched by Hourvash Pourkian, chairwoman of the Kulturbrücke Hamburg e. V. (Bridge of Culture Hamburg (Non-Profit Organisation)) and her team.
