Women from Pakistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, South Sudan and India tell their stories of building peace amid war and violence
The 11th group of Women PeaceMakers at the University of San Diego have arrived on campus for a two-month residency at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice.
The Women PeaceMakers Program documents the stories and peacebuilding practices of international women leaders. Each year, four women are paired with four professional writers to record their unique stories of living in conflict and building peace.

In addition to several public speaking engagements throughout September and October, the four women will appear at numerous events in the San Diego community, including at the FRED Forum at Scripps Institute for Oceanography from September 17 to 19.
