Women and Extremism network
ISD’s Women and Extremism network (WaE) focuses on the role of women within and against extremist movements.
Women play an important role in both online and offline radicalisation and recruitment to extremist groups. However, women can also act as early warning systems and influential counter-agents in the fight against these movements.
ISD’s Women and Extremism network (WaE), pioneers new research and initiatives to address the presence of women within violent extremist organisations and develop new ways for women to counter extremism globally.
WaE brings together policy-makers, academics and activists to increase female-led counter-narrative work and seed grassroots counter-extremism networks. This approach allows for greater understanding of how women are radicalised and facilitates an active network of women to better counter this trend.
