This public event at Literaturhuset addresses the question of the political and civic role of Somali women in Somalia and in the diaspora.

The event starts with a short documentary from the PRIO project 'Gender in Politics in Somalia' (GENSOM), after which three well-known Somali women will present their perspectives. These include

  • Anisa Hajimumin, current Minister of Women and Family Affairs in Puntland;
  • dr. Hodan Isse, University at Buffalo (UB); and
  • dr. Maryan Qassim, former Minister of Human Development and Public Services.

A general debate will follow.
