Iraqi Refugee Women's Project

Iraqi Refugee Women’s Project

As a world citizen, I often find myself alone and feeling isolated, railing against the notion that peace is a black and white achievement. The simple slogans, and the public’s need for sound-bite solutions tend to reduce our understanding of complex issues into the binary thinking of us/them, right/wrong, and war/peace. In April of 2007, I traveled to Jordan to meet with Iraqi refugee women to see what I could find.
