What Does It Mean To Be a Yemeni Woman?

How does it feel to be raised in the worst country in the world on gender equality?

Now, Yemen is entering its 5th year of war. The economy has collapsed. There’s a shift in gender roles, as women are seeking work to help support their families. One could ask if women’s empowerment is on the rise in Yemen.
Famine, the death toll, COVID -19, and other issues are taking the light away from the severe gender inequality in the country.

Feminism in Yemen: “Now is not the time for women.”

The Yemeni Feminist Movement is the first Yemeni feminist online platform. It raises awareness on feminism and discriminatory laws and practices against women in Yemen. When we post about gender equality and the discrimination against women in Yemeni legistlation, people will often say, “Now is not the time for women’s rights.” They say to me, “We are at war and all you care about is women’s rights?” or “We don’t even have human rights, so now is not the time for women’s rights.”
