Tackling Women's Empowerment and Leadership - Manal Omar's TEDx Talk

Now, More than Ever, We Need Women at the Negotiation Tables and Peace Talks

Women hold together the fabric of our societies and need to be at the negotiating tables brokering peace-talks. Look around at who the helpers are after a disaster. It is often time the women who not only hold their communities together, and are more well equipped to solve many types of problems.

 

Our Founder, Manal, and her inspirational TED Talk

With violent extremism on the rise, and trust in governments on the decline, Manal Omar believes that it's time for the peacebuilding community to change its approach to conflict resolution by inviting women, with their full sexuality intact, to take a seat at the negotiating table, where currently less that 10% of negotiators are women.
