Our 2012 Sister-to-Sister Mentorship Participants are embarking on a three-city Canadian speaking tour. The Nobel Women’s Initiative has teamed up with MATCH International for “Young Women’s Rights Activists: Conversations in Canada.”
Aghssan, Maria Luisa, and Walaa will visit Regina, Winnipeg and Ottawa from October 1-5. They will share their stories with students and young Canadian women’s rights activists, discussing the issues facing young women in their countries.
Join one of the free events in a city near you and be part of the conversation.
