FOR GIWPS, support for afghan women leaders did not end on the tarmac
After helping evacuate more than a thousand women leaders from a Taliban-ruled Afghanistan, the team at the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace, and Security has worked for their ‘dignified resettlement.’
Still processing the trauma of their urgent evacuation and resettlement, members of Onward for Afghan Women network came to Washington for a retreat hosted by GIWPS to create a safe space to share their experiences and nurture their community.
Determined to help these evacuated leaders continue to advocate on behalf of Afghan women and girls during and after their resettlement, GIWPS has identified opportunities — and built a series of platforms — to amplify their voices.
To support the dignified resettlement of Afghan women leaders and support their continued advocacy, GIWPS matched more than a dozen Afghan women with fellowships and job opportunities in academic institutions.
