Women and girls in the Middle East aren’t victims. They are fearless leaders, survivors, and activists working to build a better future.
The world has watched as the Middle East has undergone a major regional reconfiguration over the past five years. Mainstream media coverage of the region shows the chaos, danger, and struggle that is a result of terrorism, political uprisings, and violence. What we don’t hear about is the fearless work of resilient women’s human rights advocates. These daring women remind us there is another side to the story.
Now is a decisive moment for women’s rights in the Middle East. Explore powerful stories from daring women in the Middle East, and show them they have international solidarity by signing our petition! Signatures will be delivered to sister organizations in the region working to defend their rights.
