Forward Global Women Mourns the Loss of Co-Founder Rula Quawas

Rula believed with her whole heart, mind and soul that it’s women who can make and bring the difference to the MENA Region. It’s all of us: leaders, politicians, academics, social activists, researchers and lovers of peace– we need to carry on the torch and perhaps, that is how we will find solace to our grieving. Her spirit lives on in her students and in the work of Forward Global Women. May she rest in peace.
