Lucy Talgieh honored for outstanding women’s rights work in Palestine
Lucy Talgieh has been cooperating with peace- and women’s organizations since 2007. She has also played a key role in organizing a series of seminars and workshops in the spirit of UNSCR 1325. As a member in different networks and coalitions at national and regional level advocating for women’s rights and issues mainly in the areas of gender based violence, domestic violence, building strategies and developing polices to promote and protect women’s rights, Lucy has been instrumental in raising awareness to change community culture, attitudes and beliefs. She also focuses on issues pertaining to women and the law and insists that women rights must fall within the scope of human rights and as an integral part of the wider discourse on human rights.
Lucy sees this award not as a matter for mere celebration. It reminds her that there is so much more to be done and she pledges to now intensify her work in many areas of women’s rights.
