'Arctic women against men's violence' was an arctic women conference, which was included in a project implemented by the county organization Women's Shelters in Norrbotten. The conference was held in Luleå, Sweden, in January 30-February 1, 2009. It was an eagerly awaited effort to gather women from shelters and crises centres within the Arctic area in order to develop continuous networking and cooperation. Women in the Arctic need each other for exchanging of knowledge and experiences on men's violence against women. The conference was carried out successfully and it was a valuable start for continuing the cooperation.
