Here’s an announcement about an upcoming E-learning course on Buddhist women in Asia. Sounds like it will be very interesting.

Participation is free of charge and open to anyone interested, but requires online registration.
Lectures will start on 14 April and will be held every Thursday at 2.15 pm German time.
