In March 2014, women volunteers from each participating country visited Brussels to come together and meet socially, hear about the work of Brussels’ based NGOs: Autism Europe, the European Women’s Lobby and the European Disability Forum, and to present to MEPs at the European Parliament. This sharing and exchange of information was intended to inform and influence those able to make policy changes in Europe that could improve the lives of women with Autism.
