Voices of Women from the Medina is a series of testimonies from Tunisian women where they share their experiences of working, living and studying in the Medina of Tunis and showcase the significance that the Medina plays in their lives. It is part of the FEMMEDINA Inclusive City Program that examines participatory, gender-sensitive approaches to urban planning.

In the fourth episode of Voices of Women from the Medina, civil society activist Zeineb Takouti speaks about the diversity of the Medina and its aura of co-habitation. Zeineb explains how women contribute to the development of the Medina and also highlights the need for documentation to remember in the future the unique atmosphere of this increasingly dilapidated part of the city.
