Since early April 2020, ICAN has been hosting a weekly virtual gathering of its partners in the Women’s Alliance for Security Leadership (WASL). For 90 minutes women peacebuilders (and a few men), many of whom are first responders to the Corona pandemic, speak of the situation in their countries, emerging threats, positive developments and always their own extraordinary response. 

This is the news, and these are the views that are not on the news.
