Guest Lecture at Virginia Commonwealth School of World Studies


On December 5, 2014, WVN Executive Director Heidi Basch-Harod once again delivered a guest lecture to Asst. Prof. Salwa Sheibany’s course on Arab Cinema at the Virginia Commonwealth School (VCU) of World Studies.

The undergraduate course learns about Arab culture, history, geography, politics, and gender issues through film and discussion. In this year’s lecture, Basch-Harod spoke about her experience as the executive director of Women’s Voices Now and the ways in which it has opened her eyes to the shared struggles of women around the world, regardless of religion, race, creed, or socio-economic status. She also touched upon the ongoing work WVN is doing to highlight the growing global struggle for women’s rights, and to inspire others to support this movement.
