  1. I went to this panel discussion (and the rally afterwards) and would very much like to read more about the organisations and ideas the women presented. I retained a few of the speakers’ names, such as Ellen Gabriel and Samia Botmeh, and organisations, such as PINAY and CTI, but forgot the majority of them (I should have taken notes!). Is there anywhere that I may consult a list of the names of the participants in the panel?
