Dr. Halima Abdullah Jahaf, the director of Gender Development Research and Studies Center, participated in the conference which was held from 29-27 March 2019 in the Jordanian capital of Amman under the title ” Yemeni Women are Peace Mediators ” sponsored by United Nation and UN women.
The center’s director stressed, via the sound intervention on internet, the important role of Yemeni women in peace process, especially at this phase where Yemeni women suffer negative effects on all levels (political, social, economic and security) due to the unjust aggression against Yemen.
She stressed that women’s right to live in safety is above the political, economic, cultural and other rights
“The aggression and blockade imposed on Yemeni people and the closure of the airport are reasons for their lack of participation and other women. This reflects the real situation of Yemeni women that cannot obtain their most basic rights in playing their real role in the peacemaking process.
