On July 30, the Global Gender Program hosted our second annual summer conference on women’s empowerment. This summer the conference entitled, Empowering Women through Political Participation and Empowering Politics through Women’s Participation, was a huge success. It opened with a keynote by Homa Hoodfar, moved through three different panels, and closed with ending remarks by Susan Markham.
The special highlight of our summer conference is always the Pakistani guests we have visiting as part of our partnership grant with the Lahore College for Women University that is funded by the State Department. Six girls came to study at the George Washington University this summer and, as can be seen in the videos, they served as active participants in the conference.
If you missed the conference, or would just like to revisit one of the sections, it is available on the Elliott School’s Web Video Initiative.
