RGFGV Media Fellow Samira Shackle Publishes Three Articles

CSSD’s Project on Religion and the Global Framing of Gender Violence awarded reporting grants to three Media Fellows who joined the project in September. After participating in an international workshop with scholars and activists hosted at the Columbia Global Center in Amman, they traveled in the Middle East to research stories that could reframe understandings of the relationship between gender violence and religion.

Samira Shackle published three articles on refugee women’s active responses to gender-based violence and poverty in Iraq and Lebanon.
