The Role of Women in Tackling Violence and Extremism in Pakistan
Event Title  The Role of Women in Tackling Violence and Ex
Posted Date  23/3/2017
Event Place  Oxford
In a place where lives are shattered by violence and militants rule the streets, one woman took it upon herself to stand up for women’s rights and challenge the power of the Taliban. Gulalai Ismail was just 16 when she co-founded her innovative local organisation, Aware Girls, in Pakistan. Driven by a passion to challenge a culture of intolerance and extremism, Gulalai began running workshops in her home town to provide women with leadership skills to challenge oppression and fight for their rights. Last year, with the support of international NGO Peace Direct, Gulalai and her team helped over 1,300 young people in Pakistan to challenge extremism. Despite threats against her own life, Gulalai next plans to expand her work into neighbouring Afghanistan.

Flying from her home in Pakistan, Gulalai Ismail joins Peace Direct, to talk about her experiences at this seminar where you can also hear more about Peace Direct's work supporting local peace building worldwide.
