AiW at TEDxLAU Social Space!

AiW participated in the social space at TEDxLAU, this year’s event is dedicated to unmasking the truth and what is held sacred! In collaboration with one of the 25x25 global SheDecides leaders, Zahraa Dirani, AiW took the chance to talk to young women and men and activists about the SheDecides movement. It only took them one fact around sexual and reproductive health and GBV in the Arab region to sign the manifesto and stamp the SheDecides painting!

SheDecides is a global political movement working on creating a world where every girl and woman can decide what to do with her body, with her life and with her future. Without question!

Join the movement and sign the manifesto!

Happening at AiW

Working with youth, the ambassadors of change and gender equality leaders, has always been our main concern. Supporting this, AiW hosted a round table discussion with Malayah Harper, The World Young Women’s Christian Association (World YWCA) General Secretary, and inspiring young feminists in Lebanon. The discussion was fruitful as the young women leaders had different views but same vision to empower young women and girls away from society’s stigmas and taboos.
