Women’s Leadership in the Prevention of Radicalization

                           In efforts toward the prevention of violent extremism, women play a crucial role. As mothers and wives, they may detect early signs of radicalization in the family. As members of the community, they highly value family protection, education and well-being. As leaders in society, they prioritize connectivity, inclusiveness and peaceful solutions to conflict. In this session, panelists will offer their thoughts and perspectives on the role of women’s empowerment and leadership in countering extremism and resisting radicalization.

Hon. Ksenia Svetlova

As days go by we in the Middle East see how the war monster is destroying our present - by terror and death and horror, our past - by destroying the precious artworks, temples and sculptures, and our future - by luring our children into the dark hole of hatred and fanaticism.
