A new book by former U.S. ambassador to Austria Swanee Hunt profiles 90 women who were key figures in rebuilding Rwanda after the 1994 genocide. From entrepreneurs to lawmakers, “Rwandan Women Rising” highlights females who upend the narrative that women in war zones are only victims. Hunt joins us to discuss her book, and how Rwanda became one of Africa’s most stable countries.

Guests:

Swanee Hunt, author, “Rwandan Women Rising”; founder, Inclusive Security
