This year’s Arab Women’s Conference is themed “‘Quwat Al Mar’aa: The Power of Woman’” and highlights Arab women’s work to empower themselves and others, from home lives to social movements. What are the creative ways that Arab women across the Arab world and in diaspora have built our personal and collective power? • How do Arab women’s diverse backgrounds in terms of class, religion and sect, nationality, gender identity and sexuality affect our experiences of power? • What can Arab women do to heal the divides and damage created by different forms of oppression we face and grow our collective power across our differences? This year’s conference aims to highlight Arab women's incredible work to empower their communities and each other and to share tools for the collective empowerment and growth of our beautifully diverse community.
Past Conference speakers and performers have included: Dr. Rabab Abdulhadi, Randa Jarrar, Warsan Shire, Leila Buck, Dr. Laila Farrah, Elmaz Abinader, and Dr. Suad Amiry, among others. Check out past conferences here and here.
