We are pleased to announce our newest exclusive speaker: Nobel Laureate Tawakkol Karman. A fresh, exciting voice who is redefining the world of activism through her extraordinary work advancing human rights, Karman was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011 for her efforts to promote women’s safety and rights to fully participate in peace-building work in Yemen.
Upon receiving the prize, Karman became the first Yemeni, the first Arab woman, and the second Muslim woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize. Dubbed “the iron woman,” she continues to lead the charge ushering in groundbreaking political, social, and cultural change in Yemen.
