The reason that Genocide Watch is so enthusiastic about the Darfur Women Action Group is that it is an organization led by women and especially by the amazing Niemat Ahmadi. Many anti-genocide organizations are led by American or European men.  DWAG is the only organization led by a Sudanese woman, who has experienced genocide in her own country, risked her life to flee, and founded a dynamic NGO to advocate for the rights of women in Sudan and around the world.  We are convinced that the key to ending genocide will be the empowerment of women.  DWAG is making that hope real.
