The Role of Women in Creating a Counter-Balance to Extremism



February 2007 - It is important that women in Muslim and Middle Eastern countries use their life experiences, their knowledge and their involvement in society to show that extremism is a step backwards in terms of advancing peace between humankind. USFMEP President, Salwa Kader, hosted this important event to highlight the role that women can play in creating a counter-balance to extremism as members of civil society.
