The only way for women to receive equal rights is for them to "stand up" and "demand" them, a women's rights activist told a meeting at UN Headquarters this week.

Zainab Salbi is the founder of Women for Women International, a non-profit organization that provides financial, interpersonal and educational aid to women survivors of injustice, poverty and war.

Ms Salbi was at the UN to discuss radicalization and Islamophobia.

Afterwards, Lucy Dean asked her how more women could empower themselves.
