Women, Education adn Peace in Conflict - Affected Africa
The news media often portrays African women as nameless victims of conflict, lacking in agency, mobility, and opportunity. However, there is an untold story of women who protect children from conscription and attack, convey peace in the face of ethnic, religious, and tribal intolerance, and rally communities toward reconciliation. These women are teachers and leaders.
Dr. Ane Johnson, based on her research on women and conflict in Africa, will present a different face of these women, not as victims, but as agents of peace during times of conflict. She will also discuss the evolving identities of women as peace builders in Africa. Dr. Johnson is Associate Professor of Educational Leadership and Coordinator of the Women's and Gender Studies Program at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ.
Dr. Johnson has conducted research in Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire, South Africa, Togo, and Kenya and is the winner of the 2014 British Educational Leadership Management and Administration Society Best Paper of the Year for her work on women educational administrators in Africa. She earned her BA from Hollins College, her MS from George Mason University, and her PhD from Virginia Tech.
Meetings include speaker, refreshments,
announcments and letter-writing activity.
Meetings open to members and non-members.

I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic.
Each of us puts in one little stone,
and then you get a great mosaic at the end.
