#SHEINSPIRESME LUNCH 2021

Celebrating the inspiring power of women to change their worlds

ABOUT THE EVENT

Over 70 guests joined our #SheInspiresMe Lunch, this year sponsored by Jimmy Choo and Romilly Wilde, to hear guest speaker Waad al-Kateab, in conversation with our host BBC journalist and presenter Tina Daheley.

Waad’s high-risk and intimate reporting from Syria focused on the resilience and the untold stories of what life was really like for those caught in the crossfire. She spoke movingly about her experiences in Syria, documenting her life over five years in Aleppo, and the importance of creating a sense of sisterhood between women around the world.

Tina and Waad were joined by Women for Women International Ambassador Jasmine Hemsley who spoke about her support for our programme and why she supports Women for Women International.

The event was a great success, raising vital funds to support our work, enabling us to reach many more women survivors of war and helping to inspire them with hope for the future.

A huge thank you to our event partners and everyone who joined us on the day.
