Join us for a #book #discussion, with Anna Prodromou, Communication Consultant, Speaker, Educator and #Author of the book 𝑾𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒏 𝒊𝒏 𝑪𝒐𝒏𝒇𝒍𝒊𝒄𝒕 𝒁𝒐𝒏𝒆𝒔 – 𝑨 C𝒐𝒍𝒍𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝒐𝒇 𝑰𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒗𝒊𝒆𝒘𝒔 𝒐𝒇 𝑪𝒚𝒑𝒓𝒊𝒐𝒕 𝑾𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒏 (Erker, 2018).
A book which showcases a collection of interviews featuring #CypriotWomen from #diverse backgrounds and #cultures, and attempts to shed light on women’s oral histories that uncover the ways in which women navigate through #conflict.
The book engages #strongly with the consequences of the Cyprus conflict commonly referred to by the national community as the ‘#CyprusProblem’; conflicts are frequently fought on the bodies of women - a reality that has long been avoided in Cyprus.
However, Women in Conflict Zones breaks the convention of what is commonly understood as conflict; conflict is seen as any situation in which the rights of women or girls are being challenged or #violated. These situations are unfortunately not only restricted to circumstances of #war or conflict, but they extend into the wider #domestic, cultural, professional, judicial and academic environments.
The book creates a #safespace in which the multiple dynamics at play in the contemporary Cypriot environment can be discussed and also functions as a tool that can raise awareness on women’s often unrecognized civic contribution as well the promotion of women activists whose actions promote transparency, #justice and #peace.
By enabling women to #communicate their experiences, thoughts and ideas, this can also #promotechanges in attitudes and social behaviour and help communities to identify opportunities and solutions. It can also act as a #mediationtool, helping to #resolveconflicts, achieve a consensus and find #commonground based on which actions can be taken.
