We are organizing a Middle Eastern Women’s Meeting which will be held in May 2012 in Istanbul. We had our first organizational meeting on 2 December 2011. We are now collecting contact information of feminist activists and organizations from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Cyprus, Afghanistan, Tunisia, Israel, Jordan, etc. Some topics to be discussed are “The Resistance of Women to the Militarism of the Middle East” and “Local Methods and Solutions in Feminist Organizations.” The second organizational meeting will be on 18 December 2011. If you would like to attend the Middle Eastern Women’s Meeting or have related contacts, please contact us.
