Fri, 10/28/2011

The WIDE Network, in collaboration with the Collective for Research and Training for Development - Action from Lebanon (CRTD.A), co-organised an International Conference entitled: "Women's Rights and Gender Equality amidst the 'Arab Springs'” on 27 and 28 Oct, 2011 in Brussels, Belgium The two days conference was attended by 200 participants, mostly women feminist activists from 35 countries from across the globe. The panels included the experiences, insights and contributions of activists from the Arab region. Panelists featured renowned feminists from the Women Learning Partnership as well as the Equality without Reservation networks in addition to representatives from several women and international organizations. The analysis that these provided in October 2011 bear resonance to date with the unfolding of the so-called “Arab Springs” and its increasingly visible impact on the role and position of women in the Arab region.
