Struggles, Strategies & Successes:  Women Building Peace in Sudan

An Engaging Discussion with Prominent Feminist Activist, Dr. Asha El-Karib

Monday, October 3rd
3:00pm to 4:30pm
University of Ottawa, 1 Stewart St., Room 207 (SWT 207)

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.
