Saba Gebremedhin Hagos, MA Graduate

"I am very happy that I chose the MA in Gender, Globalisation and Rights. What I have learnt has strengthened my sense that what my organisation is doing is correct but also the need for deeper analysis and a more global perspective. I now see the importance of certain issues that the women’s movement in my country needs to grasp such as trafficking and migration."

— Saba Gebremedhin Hagos, MA Graduate and Irish Aid Scholar (2013-2014), Executive Director, Network of Ethiopian Women's Associations, Ethiopia.
