Episode 5: A conversation with Sanam Anderlini, Founder and CEO of the International Civil Society Action Network (ICAN)

In this episode, Sanam Naraghi-Anderlini, Founder and CEO of the International Civil Society Action Network(ICAN), and Director of the Centre for Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics and Social Science, highlights the progress made and remaining challenges for the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, twenty years after the passing of UN Security Council Resolution 1325. She talks about the specific impact of war on women and girls, the crucial role they play in building peace and their prominent place on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response.
In the context of the Black Lives Matter protests in the USA and the wider fight for equality, Sanam stresses the importance of convergence among social justice efforts to better combat the racism, sexism, and homophobia that characterize most identity-based and violent extremism movements.
