In addition to all of the above, in 2015 Women@TheTable was busy with:
A video project during the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF)’s 100 year anniversary Women Stop War Conference, and the Nobel Women’s Initiative Defending the Defenders Conference, both held in The Hague. We interviewed an astonishing array of women from conflict zones from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, Palestine, Pakistan, India, Mexico, Guatemala, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Nigeria and 3 remarkable Nobel Peace Laureates - Mairead Maguire, Jody Williams and Shirin Ebadi - on their courage, transformation into activists, and building peace.
A StoryCorps audio project with women activists interviewing one another, in collaboration with Media Matters for Women, also captured voices of activism and change with women fromthe Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Iran, the UK, the Netherlands, and the US.
In April in Oxford at Marmalade on the Fringe at Skoll we held our first Mistletoe event programming and moderating Women@TheTable: The Cutting Edge with an outrageously wonderful group of women leaders with road warrior strategic plans and deeply authentic voices:Meagan Fallone, CEO of Barefoot College, scaling the Barefoot revolutionary rural model around the world; Musimbi Kanyoro, President & CEO of The Global Fund for Women, campaigning to put women + technology #BeTheSpark front + center; Antonella Notari Vischer, Director of Womanity Foundation ground breaking work in Afghanistan, Brazil, Middle East + North Africa; Jensine Larsen, Founder of World Pulse digitally connecting women worldwide & giving voice to the voiceless, and Sharon Bylenga, Founder, Media Matters for Women, connecting rural women to information + community through technology.
