Women’s Voices on War and Peace – An Afternoon With Zainab Salbi
Queen Elizabeth Hall
An intimate afternoon with Zainab Salbi – author, activist and founder of Women for Women International.
Zainab was on a rare visit to the UK to launch her latest book ‘If You Knew Me You Would Care’ for which she conducted interviews with women in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Bosnia and Herzegovina about their definitions of war and peace, about their horrific and tragic pasts and their hopes for the future.
‘The women in this book are an inspiration to all of us who aspire to triumph over adversity. It is a personal peek at the most intimate stories as told by women who have survived war. It is a tribute to them, to their survival, their achievements, and their dreams. I hope people everywhere will take away the powerful message of survival this book inspires.’ (Zainab Salbi)
Chaired by Brita Fernandez Schmidt, UK Executive Director for Women For Women International.
