For centuries, women have been the driving force of social justice and political change, but their stories often go undocumented and remain untold. In Women’s Hands aims to change this pattern by sharing stories and insights, both historical and contemporary, in order to help build transnational networks of women organizers. This initiative is a corrective process . . . it will promote the knowledge and awareness regarding the history and role of women and their accomplishments through nonviolent civil resistance leadership. In Women’s Hands hopes to support the study, documentation and practice of the powerful roles played by women in strategic nonviolent action.
In Women’s Hands is founded by Vanessa Ortiz, with the encouragement and support of 15 women scholars, trainers and researchers on civil resistance. Our work and website is in development, but follow us and our work with women nonviolent organizers from around the world. This blog is our starting point.
