"It's so much easier too feel integrated and at home with people sharing similar stories." Susan (UK)
"Returning to the Netherlands was not so easy. I felt more like a 'world' citizen and the IWCE helped to meet like-minded women." Corine (Netherlands)
WHAT MEMBERS SAY
Many members and others enjoyed the IWCE Winter Market on 17 November at Thermae Son. The Club's bake sale was successful too: it made €330 — €120 up from last year!— donated to the Ronald McDonald House in Veldhoven.

NEOS at Members meeting
Our guest speaker on the 16th of February will be Rianne Scherpenisse, staffunctionaris Beleid & Advies at Neos Centraal Bureau. Rianne will be speaking to us on a very sensitive, tragic and yet extremely important topic: Domestic Violence.
According to the World Health Organization (or WHO) statistics from November 2016,
violence against women - particularly intimate partner violence and sexual violence - are
major public health problems and violations of women's human rights.
Global estimates published by WHO indicate that about 1 in 3 (35%) women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual
violence in their lifetime.

EEB: Tour and Tasting at Stadsbrouwerij
and Distillery, Eindhoven
During EEB's February outing on Saturday the 18th we will learn about beer and liqueurs and taste several of those by touring the Stadsbrouwerij and Distillery.
In the past Eindhoven was renowned for its beer making. There were more than thirty breweries in the 18th century. Due to industrialisation and World War ll the city breweries were forced to close down, the last one going out of business in 1953.
A search for Eindhoven's brewing history eventually led to the start of the Stadsbrouwerij Eindhoven in 2015 by a group of beer 'aficionados'. Housed in the old Schellens textile factory by the Dommel the brewers developed their own recipes for draughts, blonds, 'Russian imperials' and limited editions. They also provide tasty meals and snacks.
Members can go to the IWCE Facebook page for any updates on this outing.
Members and their partners enjoyed this year's edition of GLOW with a tour organised by EEB (Explore Eindhoven & Beyond). Braving the damp weather the group stopped at Usine and Vapiano's to warm up with a bite and a drink.
