Always an activist, she has worked for the World Wildlife Fund and for several health-related United Nations agencies. 
    Today, at 67, she consults for the UN on human rights, continues to publish widely, and travels the world solo as often as she can, documenting it all on Women on the Road, the website for solo travel over 50. A few weeks ago, taking advantage of the coronavirus lock down in France, where she lives, Leyla launched a new travel website called Offbeat France!
