Amal BashaSocial Activism (Taiz, Yemen) 2013
AMAL BASHA – A Yemeni women’s rights activist, chair of the Sisters’ Arab Forum for Human Rights (SAF). She has been called “Yemen’s most famous feminist”
Caught in the clutches of orthodoxy and reactionary forces, she has been a harbinger of Hope, particularly for women. She was the one who blew the bugle for Human Rights and gave a clarion call for the emancipation of Womankind there.
Today, her ‘Sisters Arab Forum’ and other endeavours have heralded a new era for Human Rights and Woman-empowerment! In a league of her own she “defends the rights of women, prisoners and refugees, and fights for more political freedoms.”
