Tawakkol Karman at conference on women in Italy: Building women's capacity supports peace plans and democratic and humanitarian choices

The Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights activist Tawakkol Karman said that strengthening women's status and building their capacities and skills will have an impact on strengthening communities, supporting peace plans in areas of armed conflict, and will contribute to supporting democratic and humane choices in stable societies.

In her speech today at the fifth edition of Rome MED 2019 Conference, Tawakkol Karman stressed that having strong women means having strong societies and that weakness of women reflexes unhealthiness.

It was necessary to consider providing women with the skills and abilities that would help them cope with the conditions of war, added Karman.

She pointed out that primarily social and economic empowerment of women will have a positive impact on areas of receiving refugees and migrants.
