How Women defy the conflict in Mali and build peace

The second in a series of videos on women leaders around the world, this feature takes place in Mali. Despite the dangers in areas such as Mopti and Gao, there are also encouraging signs of progress thanks to individual women advancing their small enterprises. We follow Koumba Maiga and Tata Toure in their journey to support local agricultural, dyeing and other productions, offering hope for an inclusive society and a more secure future. With the support of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Mali, MINUSMA, they each organize and support dozens of women associations in their respective city and encourage women representation in local and national elections.
