Women from Iraq, Haiti, Kenya and India in residence in San Diego through October
The Women PeaceMakers of the University of San Diego have arrived on campus for a two-month residency at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice.
Now in its ninth year, the Women PeaceMakers Program documents the stories and practices of international women leaders who are involved in human rights and peacemaking efforts in their home countries. Each year four women have the opportunity to share and build upon their unique peacemaking stories.
The 2011Women PeaceMakers (WPMs) cover a wide breadth of experience:
During their stay in San Diego, the women tell their stories to writers who capture their struggles, successes, dreams and disappointments. They interact with and address high school, college and other public audiences, and become a resource for the San Diego community.
