HAGUE TALKS; How can female leadership contribute to human rights

18 Sep 2019

Is there a link between female leadership and upholding human rights? On Wednesday the 18th of September at 19:30 we will hear stories of three inspiring speakers from different countries in the Middle East Northern Africa (MENA) region. They are using imagination and innovation to promote knowledge and sensitivity towards a more equal, just and peaceful world. A wake up call to us all.

SPEAKERS

★ Khanim Latif from Iraq, the director of the Asuda Organisation, is combatting violence against women especially in the Kurdistan region. She feels that protecting women in the short term is one thing but changing societies’ mentality is the only way to ensure the safety and freedom in Iraq in the long term.

★ Radhya Al-Mutawakel from Yemen, co-founder and chairperson of the Yemeni Mwatana Organization for Human Rights, is conducting investigative field research and documentation about the atrocities continuously going on in Yemen. She is one of Time magazine’s 2019 most influential people in the world.

★ Ghida Anani from Lebanon, is founder and director of the ABAAD-Resource Center for Gender Equality, striving for equal rights and elimination of violence against women. She has been awarded by theWorldbank in 2018 as one of 10 inspiring women entrepreneurs making a difference across MENA.
