Senses Cultural is presenting a panel discussion on the Impact of War on Women and Children in the Middle East to be held on June 28th
from 2-5 pm at San Francisco State University.
While more men are directly killed, injured and harmed in the situations of war, women are more adversely affected than men over the entire conflict. Women and girls are killed, sexually attached, and humiliated because of gender. They have to care for family during wartime, they may face displacement and separation from love ones. Children may also become victims of killed maimed, recruited to act as solders themselves or forced into prostitution. This important issue of women and children in conflict is often not completely addressed as evidenced by the recent wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan.
Senses Cultural, through its up-coming panel discussion, “The Impact of War on Women and Children,” provides the opportunity for the scholars and researcher to fill the existing information gaps on the problem and suffering of women and children in the war recently experienced by Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and others.
Our expert panelists include doctors, journalists, philanthropists, all activist in this very important and relevant cause. More information about our panelists is coming soon.
The proposed panel discussion intends to provide the opportunity for the scholars and researcher to present papers with the aim to fill the existing information gaps on the problem and suffering of women and children in the war recently experienced by Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan and most recent disasters situation in Syria. The display of the depth and extend of the impact of war on women and children in the concerned countries may discourage the parties involved choose means other than war to resolve their conflict. The other important factor to choose this time for the panel is the on-going war in Syria and the possibility of breaking of new wars in the region.
