“I WALK WITH HER”: 2000 km on foot, across Morocco and Tunisia, talking with women
Loubna Bensalah has visited Italy to tell her story in different cities. She has been CIPMO’s guest in Milan so that she could meet the public and representatives from local institutions.

In 2016, Loubna Bensalah – then in her early twenties – walked for a thousand kilometres in her country in order to know herself better and to meet other Moroccan women.
In 2017, Loubna walked for another 1000 kilometres in Tunisia.
In 2018, Loubna’s marches became a public initiative called “Kayna – Conquering the public space by women’s march”. Loubna has recently presented her experience to Paris on the occasion of the UNESCO Conference launching the project “Prevention of Violent Extremism through Youth Empowerment in Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia”.
