In collaboration with the Hand in Hand Initiative, Ghaida’a al-Absi will organize a new media training course for female politicians, activists, and human right workers in order to bring a new perspective to the Arabic-language blogosphere and to build an online network of Yemeni gender activists.

The deteriorating status of women’s rights in Yemen is frequently documented and discussed, but rarely do women themselves take part in those discussions. By reaching out to NGO’s and political parties throughout Yemen al-Absi aims to change that.
