Arab Spring: Voices of Women



February 27, 2012 - Today, women share the center stage with men in the Arab Spring. As dictators toppled and new governments were established, women made themselves the focal point of turbulent yet revolutionary times. With new constitutions and cultural shifts under way in the Middle East, the question has turned to the role of women in these new societies.

This panel articulated the vision of Arab women as well as the initiatives necessary to achieve equal participation among men and women in the Arab world.
