Women, War and What they fed the children
A NEW PROJECT:
Eighty percent of the world’s refugees and internally displaced people are women and children.
In order to humanize these statistics, we are gathering stories from women around the world who have experienced or live in war impacted areas – and we include many are not normally cited – in the United States we will collect stories from Native American women whose reservations fit the profile of a post conflict societies – we also include some inner city women’s stories in places like New Orleans which at one point had more killings that Iraq. They are many places in the developed world that meet the criteria as a war zone of sorts. We asked ourselves how do/did these women cope and care for their families and themselves. What unknown aspects of self were called up by these circumstances.
