Preparing for the AWID Forum

I am in Istanbul right now where in a couple of days more than 2000 Women from across the globe will occupy the city soon to discuss, share and voice their opinions on the economic resources for women's rights. This will give the opportunity for many activists to share their experiences on different issues related to women's rights, learn from the different opportunities presented and find common solutions.

I will post here gradually my views during the forum and feedbacks. I will also tweet for with #AWIDForum.

In order to prepare for the discussions, i am now gathering all my information and reflections on the past year's work and challenges that we faced as women's rights defenders in our country and trying to put everything together to engage others in the discussion -

I will participate in the following discussio, if you are interested join us for this solidarity round table session #30042

info about the round-table:
Building solidarity with Women Human Rights Defenders in Central Asia and the Caucus region facing violence and violations of their rights: An activist in Azerbaijan found her building demolished in retaliation for her actions denouncing illegal demolitions. Public gatherings are considered illegal in some countries in the region. Participants from Central Asia and the Caucus will share experiences of violence against WHRDs and violations to their rights, and brainstorm solidarity actions.

See you all soon!
