my sister-in law is a woman in black. once every week she joins other women from my community to stand in silent vigil in protest of war, rape as a tool of war, ethnic cleansing and human rights abuses all over the world. i am proud of susan and her consistent effort towards peace. these photographs were taken on march 21, 2003 as the bombs were falling in bagdad.

founded in 1988 by Israeli women protesting against the occupation of Palestinian land, women in black is now a worldwide network of women of all nationalities who hold vigils to oppose violence and human rights abuses in their part of the world. there are groups in nearly 200 cities.
