A Road Less-Traveled: Feminism and Advocacy in Saudi Arabia

Hala Aldorari portraitHala Aldosari is a women’s rights activist and scholar from Saudi Arabia, who found herself on the uncharted and less-traveled road of striving to unravel Saudi women’s collective power and sustain a momentum for advocacy in a country where women are perpetual minors and activism is criminalized. In this talk, Aldosari will discuss ten key messages for feminists and activists struggling to make a difference. Beyond describing the advocacy and public campaigns in Saudi Arabia, the talk will draw on significant personal insights and reflections, and provide a snapshot of an eventful journey that is attempting to organize thought and action.
