The founder of an organization that helps women survivors of war rebuild their lives will give a talk at Yale University about women's rights.
Zainab Salbi is scheduled to speak at 4:30 p.m. Monday at Yale Law School. The lecture is free and open to the public.
The lecture is titled "Empowering Voice, Engendering Change." It will feature a conversation between Salbi and Robin Wright, senior fellow at the U.S. Institute of Peace.
Salbi started Women for Women International, which has helped 315,000 women access social and economic opportunities in Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries.
She is also the author of two books. One documents her life growing up in Iraq under Saddam Hussein's rule and another is titled "The Other Side of War: Women's Stories of Survival and Hope."
