University of Cambridge | Cambridge, United Kingdom | Advancing SDG 5 & UNAI 4
" I'm very excited to have been accepted as a Millennium Fellow this year. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with a diverse group of students across the campus to promote a large number of SDGs and UNAI principles. I'm also very keen to get stuck in with my own project! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Non-Western Feminism Festival
The Non-Western Feminism Festival is a weekend-long event open to members of the University of Cambridge as well as the wider community. It will consist of a series of events, including a panel of speakers exploring the role of women in Middle-Eastern politics and how Western foreign policy impacts the way that women engage with politics domestically. That panel will explore Iraq as a case study on how women have progressed in terms of governance and whether they have a role in politics beyond titles given to them by political parties.
The aims of the Festival are three-fold. First, to share the platform that I have as a white, Western woman at Cambridge with some fantastic women from across the world whose voices deserve to be heard. Second, to raise awareness amongst the future leaders of the country of issues beyond their own personal experience. Third, to raise money for a nonprofit that supports women in the non-Western world.
