Theme: Future and Beyond

This event occurred on
November 2, 2017
Dubai, Dubayy

Our theme for the event is ‘Future and Beyond’ where our speakers intend to see the transformations that a woman goes through and the masks that they are forced to be wearing. Women act as ‘Bridges’ that bind the Universe. Our speakers will attempt at clearing few misconceptions like of the words 'equal' and 'same' which has led to serious scars on the global community today. The differences in nature and roles of genders, that in fact, are complementary to each other, must be realized and made use of. Incomprehension of these matters has brought about a manly-system, in which some women strive to become 'manly', forgetting their own strengths which could actually revolutionize and craft a better world. Additionally, they will be talking about the Paradoxes in Feminism that leads to various misconceptions and also the choices that a woman needs to make due to such paradoxes.
