Women’s Changing Roles and Leadership During the War in Ukraine

Event Details

  • Date:

One year in, Russia’s war in Ukraine has led to massive changes in the lives of women across Europe — especially in Ukraine and neighboring countries. This is accelerating women’s presence in military institutions and increasing their participation in humanitarian spaces, civil society and governance.
Ahead of International Women’s Day, join USIP, the Romulus T. Weatherman Foundation and Women in International Security for a discussion with women from Ukraine and Europe that looks at how the war is impacting gender roles in military, civil society and government institutions.
