"Women in politics… if they are not strong and effective… they cannot prove themselves to others at the political party level or the community. Therefore I appeal to every woman wanting to enter politics, to work hard on themselves. To be accepted by others, they must stand on solid grounds", stressed Wahiba Ahmed Sabrah, Vice President for the Yemeni Center of Studies and Research at an EU supported meeting on women in the peace process which took place in Cairo earlier this year. More recently a large group of Yemeni women gathered in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, for a second meeting to discuss how to pave the way for a peace process. They identified options and areas of consensus for such an agreement and the subsequent transitional period in Yemen.
