Detailing the online publication’s efforts, the report states: “Against the scenario of submissive and helpless women, there is a strong female agency that is emerging in the Middle East today, breaking down all the stereotypes by challenging this dominant view and the long-dated discrimination against women in the region. Women in the Middle East are not passive secondary citizens but active agents of social change. One example of the rising female agency in the region is the Ananke project. Unlike many women-centric virtual platforms, Ananke strives to trigger debates that are participatory; therefore providing all inclusive, positive outcomes and expositions.”

Talking about the positive response from both readers and various international media channels, Executive Editor, Sabin Muzaffar said: “It is truly humbling for us to receive such recognition in a short span of time. Here at Ananke, we believe in providing a platform for meaningful debates focusing women in an all inclusive and participatory manner. Such encouragement only goes on to reinforce our resolve to keep on moving ahead, striving to make a difference in society.”

The story can be viewed at the Moroccan Times.
