Overview

Women in positions of power, women's access to power and the impact of shifting hierarchies on women will be explored in this one day conference, which focuses on the relationship between gender and power in the Middle East and North Africa region.

The recent wave of political action has focused on increased political and economic rights for all and has sparked a renewed debate about gender equality and women's rights and roles. The messages of the Arab uprisings - widespread empowerment and the opportunity to have a voice - are echoed by those seeking equal rights and representation for women.

This conference will explore how calls for social justice and democracy impact the lives of women in politics, business and society.

This event is made possible through the support of Doğan TV Holding.
