Eventbrite - Women in Aid

In this varied, participatory and accessible event, you will hear from a range of women who have worked in aid. They will be sharing their personal experiences with you, and you will have a chance to explore the issues in more depth in our friendly Q&A session. And remember, you don’t have to be a woman to be interested in women’s issues! All are welcome.

Speakers include:

Dr Lata Narayanaswamy, Lecturer in International Development at the University of Leeds and the author of the upcoming book Gender, Power and Knowledge for Development, who will be talking about Menstrual Hygiene Management.

Mia Ali, Director of Aid Works, who will be reading some excerpts from Chasing Misery, an anthology of essays by women working in humanitarian responses.

Caroline Plenty, National Coordinator of the Friends of Irise Student Groups, who will be talking about the work of Irise, a charity working in East Africa to support the education and empowerment of girls and women.

This event is a collaboration between Aid Works and the University of Sheffield’s Global Learning Opportunities in the Social Sciences (GLOSS)
