Struggles, Strategies and Successes: Women Building Peace in Sudan

event : Presentation & discussion


Sudan is a country mired in conflict and repression where violence against women is pervasive. And yet a courageous women’s movement resists, advocates and continues to work for political and social change.
Join us for a fascinating conversation with Dr. Asha El-Karib on the efforts of women in Sudan to build peace and democracy amidst a difficult context. Dr. El-Karib is one of Sudan’s foremost women’s rights activists and the Senior Strategic Advisor for the Sudanese Organization for Research and Development based in Khartoum, Sudan.
Refreshments will be served.
