Women without Borders (WwB) created the world’s first female counter-extremism network: Sisters Against Violent Extremism (SAVE). Four years after its launch and following a series of projects and conferences, mothers from around the world met in Vienna at the WwB ‘Mothers Preventing Violent Extremism’ (MPVE) conference. SAVE network delegates spoke about their transformative efforts within their communities to develop peace strategies and discuss future projects.
