The Saturday Pre-Congress event, to announce that the midwives of the world have arrived in Bali for their triennial congress, has become hugely popular. From the Road to Durban, to Toronto’s March of Midwives and now, Bali’s Midwives’ dance for women’s empowerment, this increasingly popular curtain-raiser will allow thousands of midwives to dance together in solidarity, united in the message that the world needs to address the barriers to good midwifery care for women that caused by gender inequality.

This meeting room can seat 1,200 delegates so the event is sure to be full.
