‘Women and the Arab Spring’ theme for New Arab Woman Forum
What are the ways to ensure that women reap the benefits of changes sweeping the MENA region? That is the major agenda at the 5th New Arab Woman Forum, taking place in Beirut Feb. 1-2. The convention will take its starting point in ‘the pivotal role that females have played in the Arab Spring protests that are reshaping the geopolitical map of the Middle East.’
“The Arab Spring should not be an autumn for the Arab woman,” said the Lebanese Social Affairs Minister Wael Abu Faour, at an event to announce the theme of the forum.
