When feminism and empowerment of women and girls enter the conversation, real commitment and concerted efforts to work with communities on the ground are limited or even lacking. Stop TB Partnership challenges a diverse group of inspiring women leaders to talk about how tuberculosis interventions, youth mobilization, drug policies, LGBT rights, HIV action will benefit from a focus on feminism and empowerment and how organizations and individuals have been doing this work in the face of criticism and reluctance.
Through interactive dialogue and sharing of personal stories and experiences, we will discuss how to win over critics, overcome opposition, and how to ensure that commitment to the F word is not just lip service, but action!
