Women’s Voices from Around the World

I had an amazing opportunity as part of UN Women’s launch to hear a panel of women from around the globe share their voices at the New School in New York.

Sakeena Yacoobi from Afghanistan (the Afghan Institute of Learning), shared her major concerns about the security of Afghan women.

Three things I especially like about Sakeena’s delivery of her message.

  1. Sakeena knows the new Executive Director of UN Women is in the audience, so she makes her message relevant to Michelle Bachelet (former President of Chile) on behalf of the women of Afghanistan, because she knows Bachelet has influence and power to help lead change for Afghan women.
  2. Sakeena prepared her message – simple and to the point – Her sound bite is easy for us to understand and share with others – Women in Afghanistan need security. Violence hinders/haults their lives.
  3. Lastly, Sakeena’s voice quality is steady, pleasant to listen to and powerful all in one.
