Al-Raida: Upcoming issue on Gender and Revolution(s)

We have started to collect pieces for our upcoming issue of Al-Raida on Gender and Revolution(s). Given the current mobilizations in Lebanon, Iraq, and most recently in Iran, we want to highlight both the important role of women and the ways that gender itself has been operationalized in these movements. This issue is not specific to Lebanon, but will aim to cover the wider region.

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.
