CGD is honored to present Women & War, photographer Jenny Matthews’ poignant visual diary of women workers, caregivers and mediators living in areas of extreme conflict. The photographs illuminate faces of suffering, strength, and perseverance-from Afghanistan to Chechnya, Ethiopia to Sierra Leone. Please join us to view the exhibit, as our distinguished panelists provide a context for the role of women throughout the developing world in conflict resolution-and prevention.
