As part of Intercultire’s hugely successful  Women Talking Series, we are bringing you Refugee Women Talking, a unique opportunity to hear women from refugee backgrounds tell their stories.There will be the opportunity to ask questions In this interactive panel discussion. Our aims are :  to encourage people to ask questions directly to Refugee women and not just talk about them/ make assumptions, create safe spaces to bring people together to break down perceived cultural barriers, to encourage people to find a platform so they can make  their voices heard.

The panel came out of an intercultural awareness course ran by Interculture. Inspired by the stories we heard from both participants and members of our team ( who are also refugees) we decided to show that anyone can talk on a panel.

We have a diverse team some of whom are from refugee backgrounds. Aminata and Mona both spoke for the first time in public at our Muslim Women Talking event and are playing key role in Refugee Women Talking.

Please feel free to start a discussion on this subject. If you would like to open a topic on the matter please visit our forums

The Wolf & the Crane

A Wolf had been feasting too greedily, and a bone had stuck crosswise in his throat. He could get it neither up nor down, and of course he could not eat a thing. Naturally that was an awful state of affairs for a greedy Wolf.

So away he hurried to the Crane. He was sure that she, with her long neck and bill, would easily be able to reach the bone and pull it out.

"I will reward you very handsomely," said the Wolf, "if you pull that bone out for me."

The Crane, as you can imagine, was very uneasy about putting her head in a Wolf's throat. But she was grasping in nature, so she did what the Wolf asked her to do.

When the Wolf felt that the bone was gone, he started to walk away.

The Gnat & the Bull

A Gnat flew over the meadow with much buzzing for so small a creature and settled on the tip of one of the horns of a Bull. After he had rested a short time, he made ready to fly away. But before he left he begged the Bull's pardon for having used his horn for a resting place.

"You must be very glad to have me go now," he said.

"It's all the same to me," replied the Bull. "I did not even know you were there."

We are often of greater importance in our own eyes than in the eyes of our neighbor. The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
