The Young Arab Feminist Network was launched in Cairo from 29 April to 2 May, 19 participants from different Arab countries gathered to discuss the problems that face the young generation of the Arab feminist movement. Issues like lack of experience and absence from the decision making process, were raised. However that meeting was aiming to create a safe, diversified and knowledgeable platform for young feminists. Fatma Emam, Research Associate at Nazra participated in the event.
The idea of the network came after long debates after the inspiring event of MENA feminist meeting of AWID in Morocco 2008.
