UN Women

INTERMEDIATE COMMITTEE

Though women comprise more than half of the global population, opportunities have long been limited to housework, family care, and restricted political and civil liberties. As regional and international conflicts abound, opportunities for women to become politically and socially active in the Middle East should be extended to communities that lack means to make change. However, the differences between Middle Eastern feminist movements and Western feminist movements must be considered in order to attain realistic goals. This committee will examine the causes and effects of women in power in the Middle East, including political, historical, religious, and economic factors, and will seek to establish pragmatic yet compassionate solutions to support women for generations to come.
