The International Women of Courage Awardee: Moumina Houssein Darar
93 Pike St #307, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
Every year, the Secretary of State's International Women of Courage Award is given the women around the globe who have exemplified exceptional courage and leadership in advocating for human rights, women’s equality, and social progress, often at great personal risk. On March 13, the World Affairs Council will host one of the awardees--Moumina Houssein Darar, a leading anti-terrorism investigator in Djibouti. Since joining the National Police Force at age 23, Moumina has helped thwart numerous attacks by Al-Shabaab terrorists and started a nonprofit to serve her community all while facing numerous challenges as a female police officer, including children throwing rocks at her simply for being a woman in uniform. Join the World Affairs Council for this special opportunity to hear from Moumina, a trailblazer fighting terrorism and serving as a role model for young women in her country and beyond.
