Explore the place of women in change-making with this empowering and celebratory event, presented in partnership with the Glasgow Women’s Library.
Through an afternoon of talks, panel discussions and workshops we will celebrate the achievements women have made in shaping a fairer and more balanced political, social and cultural landscape – and, in keeping with Take One Action’s raison d’être, explore current challenges in civil society, politics, media and international development.
Hear from Naila Ayesh, protagonist of Naila and the Uprising and founder and director of the Women’s Affairs Centre in Gaza, as she reflects on her personal experience of being on the frontlines of political change; explore how we can achieve better representation for women in policy, environmentalism, culture and academia through an inclusive panel discussion; and develop your own practical skills and understanding of activism and creative resistance through a selection of interactive workshops.
