Rwandan Women Rising at 168 Brattle – June 2, 2017

I’m inviting a few close friends (you!) to join me as I describe to the Hunt Alternatives board my new—finally—book, Rwandan Women Rising

When Rwandan women saved their own country after genocide, they created a model for lasting security in countries worldwide.

Rwanda today ranks highest in the world in terms of women parliamentarians (64 percent); almost half the judges and president’s cabinet are female. In a merely two-decade span, Rwanda has forged progressive health, education, gender equity, and environmental policies along an extraordinary path that can serve as a model for the rest of the world.

Ambassador Hunt will discuss her newest work, Rwandan Women Rising (Duke University Press, May 2017), based on interviews with more than 90 women (and men) who were key to rebuilding their country after the apocalyptic 100 days in 1994.
