What Makes Us Stronger

Women For Women International

What makes us resilient in times of crisis? And how does conflict and hardship shape who we are?

What Makes Us Stronger tells the stories of some courageous women who’ve lived through unbelievably difficult times in countries like Afghanistan, Syria and Democratic Republic of the Congo to name a few, and explores how each of them took on new roles and found the strength to keep going.

What Makes Us Stronger is a series by Women for Women International, an organization which invests where inequality is greatest by helping women who are forgotten — the women survivors of war and conflict. Hosted by Nisha Singh, Global Policy and Advocacy Manager at Women for Women International.
