WPS Working Group Breakfast Discussion & Afghanistan Resources

On March 14, 2014, the Women, Peace and Security Working Group (WPS WG) convened a breakfast meeting of 26 people, including WG members, Executive Branch officials, and senior congressional staff, to meet with a delegation of four Afghan women visiting Washington, D.C. There was a two-part purpose of this meeting. First, to better understand one another’s initiatives and priorities within the women, peace and security issue-area in order to see where there might be opportunities for collaboration. And, second, to better understand the challenges and opportunities faced by Afghan women in light of the military drawdown, in order to inform both policy- and grant-making in this sphere.
