Sisters Against Violent Extremism is the world's first female counter-terrorism platform.
Headquartered at the Women without Borders offices in Vienna, Austria, SAVE brings together a broad spectrum of women determined to create a united front against violent extremism.
SAVE provides women with the tools for critical debate to challenge extremist thinking and to develop alternative strategies for combating the growth of global terrorism.
SAVE breaks through barriers of nationalism, religion, and ethnicity in order to create a global network of women dedicated to ending violent extremism.
SAVE functions as a strategic platform to promote women's voices in the international security, counter-terrorism, and peacebuilding debates. As the voices of civil society, women must be included as sought-after contributors in the security arena.
SAVE's global network encompasses a range of cultural, religious, social, and ethnic backgrounds in order to encourage critical thinking, reflection, and action.
Through its country chapters (Somalia, Yemen, India, Pakistan, Israel, Palestine, Northern Ireland, UK, Indonesia, Tajikistan) SAVE strategically positions these women as a resource for each other as well as for key social and political stakeholders.
SAVE focuses on all forms of violent extremism, regardless of religious, political, ethnic, or social affiliation.
SAVE Sisters truly belive that women's integration into the security and political spheres is key to building a safer and more secure world for future generations.
