Summer Nasser is a leader in the Yemeni American Coalition for Change, a New York–based organization supporting peaceful revolution and the end of the Saleh regime in Yemen. In this interview, Summer explains how she understands the dynamics of gender and age in the revolution in Yemen and the transnational nature of this movement.
