Happy #FridayFeeling! This Friday we want you to be as happy as Sadia from the #DRC who sells baked goods to nearby school kids and villagers. She says, "I am a happy woman with my new baking skills. I am now at peace with my family and my husband because I am contributing to my family with the small savings I gain from selling my goods”. #SheInspiresMe #StrongWomen #StrongNations #tgif

Yesterday Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton sat down with CNN’s Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour to discuss the importance of women involvement in peace and security.

This #ThrowbackThursday we are inspired by Margaret Fuller, who was a ground-breaking woman in many ways. An open feminist who published the seminal work Women In The Nineteenth Century, she also worked as editor at Ralph Waldo Emerson's journal The Dial and was the first female editor of the New York Tribune. Margaret also traveled to Europe as the Tribune's first female overseas correspondent and was the inspiration for the character of Hester Prynne in Hawthorne's classic "The Scarlet Letter". We love Margaret's strength of character and dedication!#SheInspiresMe #strongwomen #strongnations

#TBT to when we opened the first-ever Women's Opportunity Center in #Rwanda in 2013! #throwbackthursday #strongwomen #strongnations

#tbt to when @sophiet visited our program in #Rwanda! “What I’ve seen in Rwanda has been really eye-opening; harrowing, but really inspirational. That’s what’s surprised me the most. I knew it was going to be sad but in reality I’ve found myself completely inspired.” #SheInspiresMe #gameofthrones #GoT #WinterIsComing #ThrowbackThursday #StrongWomen #StrongNations

Amazing things are happening all over the world every day, like this class in the DRC where women are rebuilding their lives with new skills, education, and business training. We all have the ability to improve the world in some way - what can you give to improve it today? #Repost @womenforwomen ・・・
In the #DRC, Dady has been a life skills trainer with Women for Women International for 9 years. She has helped women who have suffered effects of the war: loss of family, looting, and rape. Today, she teaches economic skills and concepts such as inheritance, business, and raising animals. Photo Credit: Alison Wright #FridayFeeling #SheInspiresMe #StrongWomen#StrongNations

This past June, our #CEO Laurie Adams led a trip to the #Rwanda office. There, she met Mukarumanzi, a participant in our program. In the picture, Laurie is showing Mukarumanzi pictures of her family. Though they have never met, Laurie and Mukarumanzi formed a connection through discussing their love for their children. A lesson that no matter how different we may seem, there are moments of connectivity for all of us. Photo Credit: @niragir.a #SheInspiresMe #SheBringsPeace #StrongWomen #StrongNations

For today's #tbt, we celebrate Hapsa Khan, a Kurdish women known for championing girls education in #KRI. Hapsa Khan was known for her generosity and charity work at a very early age. She possessed a special place for those women who became victims of injustice and social cruelty, particularly in the city of Silêmanî in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and its surroundings. She played a major role in establishing the first school for girls in Silêmanî in 1926 by going from house to house with the teachers to register as many girls as possible, and to even convince parents to send their daughters to school. If a family didn’t have the money to support their daughter’s education, Hapsa Khan would then personally help with the financing. Many girls, and boys, got a chance to go to school thanks to her. #SheInspiresMe #StrongWomen #StrongNations #throwbackthursday

Happy #MondayMotivation! This week's quote comes from a female Yemeni human rights activist on what #peace really means. #SheInspiresMeans #StrongWomen #StrongNations

#Tbt to 1996 when Syria won its only gold medal in the Olympic games. The winner of this gold medal? Ghada Shouaa, a female heptathlete. She is the first and only woman to win a gold medal for Syrian. She has since retired from the sport but we honor Shouaa for her powerhouse and award winning strength! We hope all #Syrian women can look to Shouaa’s strength amidst the #refugeecrisis. #throwbackthursday #tbt #strongwomen #strongnations #SheInspiresMe #SheBringsPeace

Today is #PTSDAwarnessDay. At Women for Women International, we know the struggles women endure as survivors of war and conflict. Many of the women we serve are in need of emotional support and therapy sessions to overcome the trauma they have faced. Pictured here is a participant at the Khanke Refugee camp who is practicing relaxation techniques she learned in our program. #SheInspiresMe #StrongWomen #strongnations #SheBringsPeace
