Combating Violence and Discrimination Against Women and Girls | Webcast Archive

On Feb. 10, 2015, three human rights defenders joined President Carter for a discussion on protecting the rights of women and girls, with a special emphasis on women and peacemaking and on the role religious leaders can play in this effort.

In case you missed “Combating Violence Against Women and Girls and Advancing Peace,” an archived version of the webcast can be viewed below.

In addition to former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, the panelists included:

Ayisha Osori: Lawyer and the CEO of the Nigerian Women’s Trust Fund, a nonprofit focused on increasing the quality and quantity of women in government.

Sanam Naraghi-Anderlini: Co-founder of the International Civil Society Action Network, and one of the civil society drafters of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security.

Alaa Murabit: Canadian-Libyan doctor who founded The Voice of Libyan Women project, which pushes for inclusive peace processes and conflict mediation.

This event furthers the charge set forth in former U.S. President Jimmy Carter’s recent book, “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power.” President Carter has argued that the world’s discrimination and violence against women and girls is the most serious, pervasive, and ignored violation of basic human rights. It was moderated by Karin Ryan, senior project adviser to The Carter Center’s Human Rights Program.
