Women, Peace and Security in the MENA Region

PeaceWomen Consolidated Themes: 
Sexual and Gender-Based Violence
Women's International League for Peace and Freedom

The uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region came with a promise of equality and freedom. That did not happen. Today, the women in the region find themselves even more excluded from the formal decision-making in a region with an increase of militarism, arms flow and gender related violence.

Meet the women and hear their experiences. Find out how they want to improve the security of women in the region. Hosted by WILPF, the event will be moderated by Madeleine Rees, with speakers from the MENA region.
