The pivotal role of women after the Rwandan genocide offers a powerful model of peaceful change and lasting security. How they contributed to this transformation holds lessons for other countries in conflict, including nearby South Sudan, and aid donors such as the United States. The U.S. Institute of Peace and the organization Inclusive Security are hosting a discussion on Rwanda’s transition from genocide to a country at peace, where women hold 64 percent of seats in parliament.
