CNN Covers the Female Peacekeepers

Just got this email from our friend Angela who works for one of the big INGOs in Liberia:

I thought that you might be interested in a story shown last night on the CNN International Series “World’s Untold Stories.”

The show aired last night and is largely about the experiences of women and girls during Liberia’s war.

Additionally, India’s female peacekeeping police are prominently featured for their role in training the Liberian police force (men and women).

If you have installed the appropriate software, you can download and view the two parts of the piece at this website: Then go to the piece on Liberia’s Female Peacekeepers! Please feel free to share with all who are interested – it’s a ready made advocacy piece for women and girls in Liberia!
