This is done through a daily message provided by NehadAbolKomsan, ECWR’s chairwoman, via Radio Sowt Al-Arab at 10:00 AM, over 30 episodes throughout the month of Ramadan. The message is followed by a riddle through a question about a significant issue to women’s rights, and the answers are received via ECWR phone number.
