Beyond Borders - Women, War & Peacemaking

Last August, I spoke at Beyond Borders in Scotland where I had to depict the pain of my beloved Yemen, & I tried my best in naming & shaming the UK gov' for its arm sales w/ the Saudis.. other speakers included the Iraqi parliamentarian, Shirouk Alabayachi; she had valuable inputs about ISIS. (Funny how the panel was supposed to focus only on women in conflict & we, the women speakers rolled up our sleeves & talked about that and the hard talks too, Politics. Women can talk politics too, you know..)
