Eleven Women Facing War

This photo book is the culmination of a monumental endeavour that began in 2001, when the ICRC commissioned photographer Nick Danziger to document through films and photos women’s experiences of conflict around the world. The outcome of Nick’s work accompanied the ICRC’s Women facing War study and also led to an exhibition that attracted the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan.

Ten years later, Nick went back in search of the eleven women documented in 2001 who had come to represent the plight of women caught up in conflict, resulting in this moving collection of photos and personal accounts.
