Women’s World Today: War, Violence, and Escape

Summer School | 11:30 AM - 5:00 PM | Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists

Lecturer: Maria von Welser

Research was carried out in Afghanistan, India, Eastern Congo, and in international refugee camps in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and on the Greek island of Lesbos. The result was a UN list titled: Countries in which it is the greatest danger to be born as a girl. A nightmarish reality. In these countries, girls and women are worth nothing, and condemned to an early death. In this course, Maria von Welser, an internationally renowned journalist, will discuss the deplorable lifesituation of women and children in the countries on the UN list. She has experienced first-hand the devastating state of affairs faced by refugees from these countries, caught between the homelands they have fled and the borders of Europe.

Participants will be presented with a detailed description of the political background in these countries, as well as reports from women, children, and their families on the horrible situations in which many women and children are still forced to live today.
