Women’s Leadership in the Prevention of Radicalization
In efforts toward the prevention of violent extremism, women play a crucial role. As mothers and wives, they may detect early signs of radicalization in the family. As members of the community, they highly value family protection, education and well-being. As leaders in society, they prioritize connectivity, inclusiveness and peaceful solutions to conflict. In this session, panelists will offer their thoughts and perspectives on the role of women’s empowerment and leadership in countering extremism and resisting radicalization.
