Take part in interactive sessions with the International Women's Health and Human Rights this weekend!
1. Watch Anne's First Tea Time
Anne celebrates Syrian women and welcomes you to this session of the course! (We are sorry for the delay in this tea time session. Anne's computer was out of commission, but she is now back online!) Watch the video and ask a question for a future session in the Tea Time section of the course website.
2. Chat with Other Learners Live
Sign up for a weekly Talkabout Session and chat about this week's content live! We have four sessions available this weekend (February 13 & 14). Visit the Interact page of our website to learn more about these opportunities to connect with a global community of learners, practitioners and activists!
This map shows places where group meetings have been taking place all around the world. Discussion guides are now all available on the Discussion Toolkit section of the Interact Portal. This week's themes touch on Female Genital Mutilation/Gutting, HIV/AIDS, and "structural violence" against women.
3. This Week: Female Genital Mutilation, HIV/AIDS, Structural Violence

4. Clarifications & Logistics
We noticed that some folks were not able to access parts of the forum last week, related to Education. We have made sure these sections are now all accessible. Do not worry if you were previously unable to post; please add your comments now. As long as you complete your work before the end of this course, we will count it for a Stanford Statement of Accomplishment. However, we strongly recommend you keep up each week, because there's a lot of interesting new material to cover and a variety of assignments to help you check your learning and engage with your community.
Please stay in touch with us and share your thoughts on setsail.io as the course progresses.
