Somali women call for greater role in politics and access to justiceListen /
In Somalia, a country once described as "one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a woman", an important conversation is taking place.
The political marginalization of women and their exclusion from the decision-making process was tackled at an event entitled "Women, Peace and Security Open Day".
The Open Day, held annually since 2010, provides a platform for women affected by conflict and senior UN leaders to discuss key issues of concern.
