Age No Bar for Action








My article was published in the Eastern Eye on 18th May 2012!

I went with my mum, Shaista Gohir to the AWID forum (Istanbul 2012). More than 2000 women from 140 countries attended the event.  I interviewed the following women at the event:

  • Fawzia Koofi (MP from Afghanistan)
  • Zainah Anwar (Director of Musawah, a global Muslim women’s movement – Malaysia)
  • Lydia Alpizar Duran (Executive Director of AWID – Mexico)
  • Anna Pelagie (activist – Cameroon)
  • Ester Jarome and Mwandiwe Kali – (farmers from Tanzania)
  • Zoe Blumenfield (Communocation Officer from Global Fund for Women – US)
  • Nannyondo Sarah (student activist – Uganda)
  • Dr Tahmineh Danioli (activist – Iran)
