A network of women civil society leaders working together to advance women’s rights and regional peace in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India.
WHAT WE DO
WRN amplifies the voices of conflict-affected women in order to address the interlinked issues of peace and justice, governance and security, within the context of growing militarization in South Asia.
OUR ADVOCACY APPROACH
Women bear the brunt of forcible displacement.
Community Conversations are honest conversations with displaced women to capture their concerns, needs, testimonies, and solutions to inform political discourse and policy.
WE KNOW THAT
Empowering young women is the key to a just peace.
We support young women's leadership development by providing learning and mentoring opportunities, hosting digital cross-border exchanges, and sharing stories of change and resilience.
It has become hard to narrate an Afghan, a Pakistani, or indeed an Indian story divorced from the internecine conflict - internal or international. On their own, neither the State nor the private sphere can be relied upon to guarantee women’s freedom from violence and harassment, or fair and impartial justice. Therefore, it is critical that women civil society organizations work collaboratively to face the multitude of threats women face inside and outside of their homes.
Support us and stay updated in our work to advance women’s human rights and regional peace.
