Online Event | No participation without protection: Women’s rights in areas controlled by armed and political movements

When: Thursday, 8 December 2022 at 13:00-14:15 CET

Where: Online event via Zoom

*This event will be held in English, Arabic and Burmese, with simultaneous translations.


About the Event

This event presents recent findings of a pilot study conducted by the Fight for Humanity and Berghof Foundation, with the support of the German Federal Foreign Office, on the role of armed political movements in Myanmar in the implementation of the agenda on Women, Peace and Security (WPS). The findings show that these movements and women’s groups associated with them do indeed engage with the spirit of the WPS agenda, specifically regarding women and girls’ participation and protection, but that they also face various challenges related to limited resources, knowledge and technical expertise.

In a panel discussion, we intend to inquire about the progress, difficulties and prospects of women and girls in areas under the control of armed and political movements, and what potential roles these actors can play in the implementation of the WPS agenda. The discussion will be complemented by the comparative perspective of a Yemeni women’s rights advocate. Raising awareness on women’s rights in conflict areas two days before Human Rights Day, this event takes place in the spirit and framework of the UN’s 16 Days Activism Against Gender Based Violence.


Event Speakers

  • Beytul Gorkem - Head of Operations, Fight for Humanity

  • Zin Mar Phyo ('Boke Boke’) - local consultant, researcher and journalist

  • May Sabe Phyu - Kachin women’s rights activist

  • Dr Najwa Fadhl - President advisor for women issues of the Southern Transitional Council (Yemen)

  • Danielle Feldstein - Desk Officer for Women, Peace and Security, German Federal Foreign Office

The event will be moderated by Véronique Dudouet - Senior Research Advisor, Conflict Transformation Research Department, Berghof Foundation.

The main difference between the true bar squid box and other box mods is that it has a removable battery. That allows you to change the battery when it runs out. It also means that you don't have to dispose of it entirely when the juice has run out True Bar Squid Box 5200. This vape is ideal for beginners who are tempted by disposable devices but may be unsure how long they need to use them. The problem with other box mods is that they have a built-in battery, which means you have no option but to throw them away when they run out of juice.
