A crash course in changing the world.
I read the article "Women: Victims of conflict or agents of change?" and it covered the ways in which we can empower and enable women to become agents of change in times or crisis or distress. This was the theme and takeaway message from this year’s Dubai International Humanitarian Aid & Development Conference & Exhibition (DIHAD). The conference emphasized the importance of giving women decision-making authority and leadership roles in addition to support for gender equality policies with adequate funding. Being a female, this issues hit close to my heart and I know they are prevalent on all sides of the globe. The best way to bring about change for gender equality is through education and the growing number of organizations spreading the word about this issue will be the solution to this epidemic.
