„A Seat at the Table“ (Episode 7)

Sustainable Social & Economic Development in the Region by Empowering Women with Ghida Anani

Ghida Anani advocates for the development and implementation of policies and laws that enhance women’s effective participation and courageously tests new approaches in her efforts to achieve an equitable society, free of hegemonic masculinities and violence against women. She also works effortlessly with ABAAD to promote gender equality in Lebanon and protect women and girls during times of peace, war and disasters.

In this episode, we discuss the importance of working on gender based violence (GBV), the impact of the economic crisis in Lebanon on GBV, and ways forward for a better future for women in the region.
