In honor of International Women’s Day 2018, the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council for Western Asia’s (ESCWA) Centre for Women, in partnership with the Asfari Institute for Civil Society and Citizenship at the American University in Beirut (AUB), have decided to pay tribute to women who initiated transformative change within their countries in the Arab region.
Through a series of short videos, prominent women from the Arab region were to briefly share their aspirations for women in 2018. The women selected for the campaign are pioneers in their fields: academia, judiciary, civil society, technology, and the private sector; many are also activists and women’s human rights defenders.
Nayla Al Khaja has been chosen as one of these personalities. She participated in the Lazem Campaign to share her vision for women in 2018 through a one-minute filmed intervention, where she could answer the question: “What can enable women in your country to elicit transformative change in the year 2018?”
