We are thrilled to host Yara Sallam to discuss Even The Finest of Warriors, a research and a book project which deals with issues that have been long ignored because they have been categorized as ‘personal issues.’ This project is concerned with psychological health, general exhaustion, financial security, as well as growing old as neglected intersections, despite how important they are in the context of documenting the struggle of women in the public space.
// We will be hosting a 20 minute post-workshop networking exercise to allow folks to meet others who share their interest, and strengthen collaborations across various lines. Make sure to schedule in 20 minutes extra on your calendar, if you are interested in joining //
