In recent years, the international community has examined and promoted the unique role of women and girls in countering violent extremism. But what does this mean in practice? How can the international community best support women and girls facing the challenge of recruitment and radicalization to violence?
This event will focus on the work governments and civil society have done to address the threats facing Iraqi and Syrian women and girls by Da’esh/ISIL/ISIS.
