International Women’s Program Brochure

Women and girls in societies with fundamental inequalities are the intended and unintended casualties of war. Women caught in military conflicts face sexual violence and exploitation, torture, forced recruitment, rape, mass rape, and trafficking. In postconflict transitions, women are often denied access to justice and a role in decision making, including peace and reconciliation efforts.

This brochure details the ways in which the International Women’s Program of the Open Society Foundations supports courageous women in fragile, transitional countries in their efforts to create stable, egalitarian, and open societies.
