The question I would like to address for the conference theme of women and social transformation, a new era for a just and gender-fair society, is how networks and their potential for empowerment may contribute to this berg aim, especially in regions of tropical Asia.

Influenced by theories in network science and philosophy this interdisciplinary keynote paper emphasises the power of networks across multiple plateaux, starting with the networks evoked through images in an artwork, flinging across to women's networks, and thinking through education networks.
