The FIDE Commission for Women’s Chess (WOM) announced a new world class initiative to promote and further women’s chess.

It is co-sponsored by FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, WOM, Webster University, and the Susan Polgar Foundation.

As part of this “Chess for Girls” project, there will be two events this summer. The first one will take place at Webster University in Geneva, Switzerland, June 22-29, followed by a second one in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam July 1-8.

Ten of the top young talents (from Europe and Asia) are invited for each of the two events.
