Meet Mariana Katzarova, the founder of RAW (rawinwar.org) an amazing charity which reaches out to women in war. Supporting human rights defenders in war zones (inc brave journalists) & working with women active in supporting women and girl victims of conflict (e.g. The Yazidi victims of Daesh). An inspirational lady, oozing humanity, passion and dedication. With news of war bombarding me for decades now I guess I've built an immunity to the effects of war on individuals - the scarring emotional physical financial trauma is real, and I haven't given it a thought as an extension of seeing the news. Thank you @marianakatzarova for raising awareness that women are left to pick up the pieces to re-sew fabrics of relative normality. Watch this space as we at LMS are proud to have the opportunity to support and work with this cause! #victimsofwar #womenintheword #thisisreal #inourlives #wartime #womenofwar #humanrights #rawinwar

Was utterly inspired and moved yesterday hearing these incredible women speak at the #WomenoftheWorldFestival. They deserved their #StandingOvation ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏿 The winner of this years #AnnaPolitkovskaya award was #KholoudWaleed, a #Syrian woman who is the editor of a newspaper bringing accurate news to the people of Syria under the regime. Kholoud and her colleagues have risked their lives and sacrificed their freedom to bring truth to the people. I was blown away by her humility and bravery. She was also joined by last years winner #VianDakhil from Iraq, the only Yazidi woman in the Iraq parliament who was awarded for her courage and determination in campaigning for the protection of Yazidi and all Iraqi women against ISIS. She is at the top of ISIS hit list and yet she still spends every single day fighting for justice. The Woman who inspired these awards, Anna Politkovskaya - the campaigning Russian journalist and outspoken govern­ment critic, who exposed the brutal treatment of civilians in #Chechnya at the hands of both the #Russian forces and the Moscow-supported Chechen of­ficials. She was assassinated in 2006. Every year since her death her Award goes to a Woman human rights defender from a conflict zone in the world who, like Anna, stand up for the victims of this conflict, often at great personal risk. Look these Women up - read about them. They are utterly awe inspiring. Although we Women in the west can face our own challenges of inequality - we seriously have NO idea what it means to be a Woman in many other parts of the world. It made me ask myself... if that were me, would I be so brave? would I risk my lives for others? I'd like to think so... but I honestly don't know that I could. #WOW #Southbank #Women #Campaigner #humanrights #sisterhood #feminism #inspiration #bravery #celebrate #RawinWar #RefusingtobeSilenced Check out Raw in War and learn about previous winners of the Anna Politkovskaya Award 🏆 http://www.rawinwar.org/content/view/148/213/

For inspiration look no further than Kholoud Waleed, who risks her life as editor of an underground newspaper reporting atrocities in Syria, and Vian Dakhil, the only Yazidi MP in Iraq and fighting for Yazidis under siege in the face of IS. Honoured and privileged to hear these brave human beings speak at #WOWLDN #rawinwar #womenoftheworld
