Women Who Won the War

In times of war, the experiences of women are often stereotyped, relegating them to the role of victims wives, mothers, and daughters of heroes or casualties.


“Women Who Won War” aims to create spaces for women to narrate their stories in diverse ways.


The initiative goes beyond mere storytelling; it offers support, training, and guidance to female journalists operating in conflict zones, with a particular focus on the Middle East and North Africa.


The goal is to empower them to tell and portray stories from a feminist perspective that is more considerate of our human diversity.


This project was established under the “JIM HOGE Legacy Fellowship offered through the International Center for Journalists ICFJ.
