International Women’s Day 2023 – a salute to the women of Ukraine

Ukrainian women – both inside Ukraine and beyond its borders – have played a crucial and remarkable role in sustaining their country’s well-being and morale, as well as that of their children, over the past year.

We salute them, and share a collection of articles about the women of Ukraine at this difficult time:
