Global Women's Narratives Project

About Us

The mission of the Global Women’s Narratives Project is to amplify women’s voices and experiences through the power of storytelling. Through this narrative platform, the Global Women’s Narratives Project engages the personal and collective power of women’s lived experiences to create a database of narratives that storytellers, policymakers, scholars, lawyers, and human rights advocates can use to affect change. Our narrative themes are war and peace, religion, global health, gendered violence, life's work, and identity.


Our plan to launch the GWNP into a larger arena in 2020 is grounded in our combined research in international human rights law, narratology, development, war and peace, religion, and psychology. Our work suggests that women’s lived experiences are underrepresented in our knowledge across a broad cross-section of disciplines; that women’s global narratives can be used as mechanisms of inspiration and influence. By curating a global database of diverse and thematic stories, the GWNP can move the needle on more efficient policy affecting women.

The Global Women's Narratives Project is part of the nonprofit Oxford Initiative for Global Ethics and Human Rights. www.oxfordglobalethics.org
