Stronger women, stronger nations
Zainab Salbi
IraqGALLERYCONVERSATION
Women have a profound impact on the life of their families, their communities and nations. They also have a vital impact on each other.
With the news of bombs and missiles falling in distant places, we might feel that we are worlds apart. The fact is, we share great common ground. The growing network of women helping women is so critical.
There are many ways to support one another. Reach out to help your neighbor, sponsor a woman, or even begin to participate in Imagining Ourselves for the discussion on Culture and Conflict: Uniting Women Across Boundaries. Through this special online discussion, you will have the opportunity engage in a conversation with and to read stories, view paintings and documentary pieces by women who are survivors of these conflicts and who are working to create a more harmonious world.
You will also have the chance to take action yourself and find out about how to get involved with numerous organizations that are working on behalf women worldwide. This month’s online dialogue will also focus on the nature of identity in our global era and the impact of globalization is having on our lives.
We need to observe what happens to women if we are to understand the direction of any society. At the core of progress is the status of women. Stronger women build stronger nations.

Women have a profound impact on the life of their families, their communities and nations. They also have a vital impact on each other. Everyday increasing numbers of us are defying conventional lines based on race, ethnicity, religion and nationality and are uniting to create a complex network and system of support that reaches from one corner of the globe to the other.
