From August 2010 to August 2012, The Institute for Inclusive Security implemented a program in Pakistan with support from the US Institute of Peace titled “Pakistani Women Moderating Extremism.” The initiative supported the formation of a national coalition of women leaders dedicated to curtailing extremism and promoting social cohesion. This first policy brief of a two-part series explores the impact of extremism on Pakistani women, illustrates the critical role that women play in moderating it, and provides policy recommendations for how to support Pakistani women’s peacebuilding efforts and address radicalization and extremist violence.
