Time to Talk
October 6, 2020 @ 18:00 - 19:30 CESTFree – NOK100
The UN reports that 1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced either physical and/ or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner (not including sexual harassment). Sexual violence is one of the most common problems we have as a global society, and we do not address it nearly enough. Join us in our very first dialogue with our guest Munira Mariama Makarov as we tackle sexual violence, resilience and the importance of speaking up.
About the series:
Time to Talk is a series hosting a variety of topics too often neglected or avoided in our society. As an organization that aims to create the future we want now, Manifold believes we must start doing the work and create an environment where nothing is off the table. Together, we want to cultivate knowledge and awareness and tackle issues head-on to find solutions.
About our guest:
Meet Munira Makarow. Munira is a creative mother of two. She is a published artist, poet and painter. She is also the recent recipient of the Voices of African Women (VAW) most supportive of other women awards.
Her greatest passion is to support and uplift women regardless of where in life’s journey they are. Munira is an instructor in various Courses, Flexid (flexible identity) being among the current courses she takes to support youth with multicultural upbringing and flexible identities.
Munira works as a part-time interpreter. She is the voice behind THI (Tverr Kulturell Helse Info), a piece of cross-cultural health information on the Corona Virus videos in the Somali language. Munira has suffered from chronic autoimmune disease from a very young age, but that hasn’t stopped her from being an advocate for survivors of rape.
For years, she has raised awareness about sexual violence, rape, and abuse through her social media platforms and her art. Previous to that, she has travelled across Norway and many countries working tirelessly to break the taboo of speaking up. Munira uses her art to speak up from a survivor’s perspective.
