BEIRUT: Building upon the success of last month’s special issue, which brought together an unprecedented group of prestigious guest writers, Annahar has now invited a number of well-established women from across the region to play the “role of journalists for the day.”

“Behind every great woman... is herself,” says Annahar Editor-in-Chief Nayla Tueni.

On March 21, the special issue will hit the stands across Lebanon, with Tueni signaling the significance of the date to further empower women from different facets of everyday life.

“It seems fitting that the issue be released on mother’s day,” she says, adding that “the issue will not just bring together mothers, but every woman with a message.”

These contributors are pioneers in their respective fields, who will seek to elevate the discourse on a bevy of issues, from life and tragic loss to politics and the country’s economy.

Annahar will, therefore, provide the platform for these women to express themselves as they see fit, says Tueni, emphasizing the unconstrained space afforded to them.

“Each contributor will tackle the subject of their choosing, a topic they are passionate about, without any limitations.”

“This is the message of Annahar,” she affirms, to “promote women and raise their voices.”

Women from both Lebanon and the Arab world will put pen to paper in the issue, as Annahar has transcended borders, with “its voice reaching every Arabic and English speaker.”

This venture will also seek to highlight the important role journalists play today, giving women the opportunity to grasp “the continued significance of traditional journalism despite the rise of social media.”

“We hope to deliver a touching yet resonating scream,” Tueni says.
