Seeks to help women and children build better lives in conflict and post-conflict societies.
WBS recognizes that women play vital roles as caregivers, laborers, activists, and intellectuals in communities around the globe. WBS also recognizes that all too often women are made the victims of abuse, sexual violence, and gender discrimination and that such injustice frequently prevents women from attaining the respect they deserve and fulfilling their potential as active contributing members of society. Recent global conflicts have shown that warfare and violence disproportionately affect women and tend to exacerbate their victimization and marginalization.(www.womenbeyondsurvival.org)
