The Russia-Ukraine War: Women Voices

March 31, 2022

The war in Ukraine affects everyone, without distinguishing between civilians and soldiers, between young and old, between men and women. And women voices have their testimonies in front of this war with inhuman faces.

On the forefront with weapons in their hands.
In towns and villages to help civilians and soldiers.
Along the roads leading to the shelters or across the border.
They pray to give hope, to ask for justice and peace.
They mourn fathers, husbands, sons, and brothers killed.
They abandon everything to save their loved ones.

This discussion is about the experience of war as a woman-mother, a woman-wife, a woman-volunteer, a woman-theologian, a woman-teacher - just a woman who one day found herself at the center of this terrible war.
