Women are gaining influence as leaders throughout the world, fighting for peace, justice, the environment and civil society. In this program we profile three courageous change makers: Shereen Essof is an advocate for democracy and land rights for women in Zimbabwe. Sahar Saba is a leader in RAWA, the underground resistance organization struggling for women’s rights and democracy in Afghanistan, and Wendy Pekeur represents farmworkers in South Africa.
This Women’s Desk program is a special collaboration with the Women Rising Radio Project, Lynn Feinerman and Crown Sephira Productions.
