About SEVEN on Tour:
SEVEN has toured 42 countries, including NATO HQ and the European Parliament. It weaves together the stories of seven courageous women activists from Russia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Northern Ireland, Afghanistan, Guatemala and Cambodia who overcame abuse of power and advanced Women’s rights. Diverse actors have come together to read the powerful testimonies, and in doing so transformed mindsets and behaviours.
SEVEN has strengthened cooperation between stakeholders from grass root to governmental level and empowered individual activists in their local communities.
