Women on the Frontline. Inclusive transition in the Middle East and North Africa

Utrecht, 20 September 2013, 15.00 – 17.00

The events in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) have shaken the world. All over the region countries are in a state of transition, although the nature and stage of this transition differs dramatically. The opening up of societies provides unprecedented opportunities for investing in the improvement of gender equality and women’s empowerment. On the other hand, the uprising also generates major challenges. In some MENA countries there is already a decrease in women’s political participation and an increase in gender-based violence. Dialogue is of the utmost importance; between the government and opposition, government and civil society and also within civil society at large. Women need to be ready and able to make their voices heard when the transition is completed, but also now.
