Dr. Huda Zurayk's

At the 2014 Lecture for Radcliffe Institute of Advanced Studies at Harvard University, Dr. Huda Zurayk’s argued that basic health and wellbeing indicators in understanding the lives of Arab women need to broadened to include their contextual historical, cultural, educative and economic dynamics which often act as constraints on women’s full realization and the transformation of their environments. Despite the progress in basic health indicators, Arab women continue to live with inequality, untreated illness and gynecological problems, lower quality education, insecurity and the uncertainty of war and conflict in the Middle East. Dr. Zurayk’s further reflects on what are appropriate responses and strategies to reach Arab women in their varying backgrounds.
