The Women Leading Yemen’s Peace Movement

Yemen is a nation in crisis.

Since 2014, the country has been in the grips of a devastating civil war that has left nearly a quarter of a million people dead. In 2020, under the added strains of the COVID-19 pandemic, Yemen’s healthcare system collapsed along with its resource supply chains.

In the midst of Yemen’s historic humanitarian crisis driven by years of conflict and the effects of COVID-19, a movement for peace has emerged – and it’s being led by women.
