About women on the frontline
Women on the Frontline (WoF) launched in 2013, following and building upon the great hopes and aspirations that arose from the Arab uprisings of 2011. The programme was initiated by Hivos, in cooperation with PwC, Oxfam and the Institute for War & Peace Reporting (IWPR). WoF was conceived as an umbrella programme for long-term investment in building the capacities of civil society organisations that work towards peace, security and advancing political participation of women and gender equality in seven Middle East and North Africa countries: Syria, Libya, Yemen, Iraq, Tunisia, Egypt and Bahrain.
