Tuesday, 12 February 2019, Rectory of the University of Lisbon

The 12th of February, the day the Foundation completes 10 years of existence, is dedicated to the current situation of women in Portugal and in the World. In the second panel of the Encounter Samantha Power, Freida Pinto and Ghida Fakhry take to the stage. They will talk about the role of women and the way forward with regard to gender equality in different societies based on their professional experiences, which include scenarios of war. Knowing realities such as the Middle East, the Balkans or Africa, they compare them with the North American cosmopolitan perspective and ask: to what extent should Western countries, through international organizations such as the UN, play a role in promoting gender equality in others cultures and societies?
