Women for Women International
by Meia Geddes
“I believe the way to stop violence against women is to speak out and refuse to be silent.”
“Women are the glue of families and societies; when women thrive, countries thrive.”
–Zainab Salbi, an Iraqi woman who founded Women for Women International at age 23, in 1993
There is lots more from the website!: Women for Women International provides women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies. We’re changing the world one woman at a time.
