UNPO held successful conference entitled: “Women’s Inferno in #Ethiopia”

(Advocacy for Oromai, 27 March 2017) #UNPO in collaboration with the People’s Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD) and Liliana Rodrigues MEP (S&D) held successful conference entitled: “Women’s Inferno in #Ethiopia“.

The successful conference hosted a variety of high-level speakers, discussing the degrading #humanrights situation in Ethiopia today, especially for those from #marginalised communities.

The conference placed a focus on how women from these marginalised communities, namely #Ogaden, #Oromo, #Sidama, #Gambella and #BenishangulGumuz suffer from multiple layers of #discrimination.

The speakers shed a light on the use of #rape as a weapon of #war, and the necessity to provide women with the necessary care to recover.
