Women Wage Peace Continued


Hello Listeners and Happy New Year!

We have been silent for a while, yet not idle! We took some downtime at the holidays to focus on this new year, which is turning out to be the Year of the Woman! iVOW is continuously sharing women’s strengths, disappointments and victories.

This year, you will hear more on how women overcome hardships and gender bias, and rise to the top of their fields. The first interview features Ret. US Marine Corps Officer Kyelanne Hunter, who was a Peace Researcher at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice at USD (IPJ). Kye is a woman of many talents who will inspire you with her comments on a variety of important issues. Please click here to listen to Kyelanne.

You will also hear the dulcet English tones of Kimberly Loh, who holds a master’s degree in negotiation & conflict resolution from Columbia University, and is a peace researcher at the IPJ. Her intelligent insights provide a sensory journey through her research work. Please click here to listen to Kimberly.

Their research briefs and work will be available online later in 2018 by clicking here.

Please stay tuned to iVOW. Pass our interviews onto the women and men in your life. Discuss them with your daughters and granddaughters. Be inspired to learn more about the issues.

Thank you,
The iVOW Team

Women Wage Peace

2017 Women PeaceMakers

For eight weeks, four extraordinary global women peacemakers take up residence at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice (IPJ.)

From September – November 2017 the women came from Afghanistan, The Gambia, The Philippines and Trinidad and Tobago. 

iVOW had the privilege of interviewing them, and we are delighted to share their voices with you.  The adversities they face, the obstacles they overcome, and the integrity with which they fight for women’s rights and human rights will inspire you as it did us. 

Listen while you’re working, walking, waiting, and wondering.  You’ll be changed.  And the world will seem a little bit smaller because these women have shared their worlds with you.

We would love to hear from you! If there is a topic you would like us to cover, please let us know.

Thank you for listening.

Happy Anniversary iVOW!


Can you believe it’s been one year since we launched iVOW? We can’t either, however, we are very excited that we have filled 12 months with voices of wisdom, warmth, and wit.

Darlene Shiley 2
As a gift to you, our listeners, we are replaying our first interview that inspired the launch of iVOW. Philanthropist Darlene Shiley is well-known in San Diego, however, you may not know very much about her youth, her role models, and her love for her deceased husband, Donald. Darlene waxes from philosophical to funny, from insightful to inspirational. You’ll enjoy hearing from her as much as we did.

So, stay tuned! We’re not going away! In fact we have a series of interviews lined up for the next 12 months. We would love to hear from you! If there is a topic you would like us to cover, please let us know.

Thank you for listening.

Dr. Rubina Bhatti and Jenni Prisk

We are thrilled to welcome you to iVOW! In May 2016, we launched our first Podcast, promoting the Voices of Women in our Global Community. We are honored to have spoken with Dr. Rubina Feroze Bhatti of Pakistan in our inaugural program.

Bhatti is a noted global human rights activist who was born into a Christian family in the majority Muslim country of Pakistan, and has dedicated her life to protecting the liberties of others. She was selected as one of the 1,000 women nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

We know you will find her as fascinating as we did!

Over the next weeks, months, and we hope years, we will advise you on this website, of our upcoming interviews. We welcome your thoughts, responses and requests for subjects or people to profile. Please write to us with your suggestions, we look forward to hearing from you!

We invite you to refer this Podcast to your friends, family and colleagues. Together we will create an important and meaningful global community of the voices of women who will educate, empower and enlighten all of us.
