Woven Liberation: How Women-Led Revolutions Will Shape our Future
Understanding the history of women’s pivotal roles in revolutions is essential to helping us create a new map that will permit us to move forward into far more enlightened and compassionate societies around the world. This panel will explore women’s game-changing roles in anti-colonial and liberation movements, from Algeria, Chile and Liberia to the courageous present-day women in Iran. We will survey the strategies and themes of several effective women-led revolutions in history, as well as the necessity of the everyday “inward revolution” required to shape the outer change we seek as a collective. With: Azita Ardakani, Iranian-born entrepreneur and social activist; Zainab Salbi, Iraqi American women’s rights activist and writer, co-founder of Women for Women International. Moderated by Bioneers co-founder, Nina Simons.
