Women and girls are disproportionately impacted by violence and conflict, and are often the first to detect insecurity. It is for these same reasons that women leaders are well-positioned to mitigate the impact of insecurity on women and girls, as well as civilians in general, to foster a culture of peace. Women leaders at multiple levels are actively pursuing greater security and stability for the sake of not only women and girls, but also their community as a whole.
The Wilson Center's Women in Public Service Project and Plan International USA are hosting an event to convene women leaders, experts, and civil society to discuss how women are making a difference to proactively advance the security and stability of societies. The conversation will be moderated by WPSP Director Gwen K. Young.
