Posted November, 2001 Tanya Elders (Malawi 1997–99) has created a website that features stories about women in every country that Peace Corps serves or has served in. The website would serve as a place where women in developed countries could learn about women in developing countries, where they could experience a piece of another woman’s life and perhaps find relatedness in their lives. The website would work to create a global community for women. “We Are All Sisters” is completely nonprofit and would be built and maintained with donated efforts. Visit the site at and learn how to make submissions. Stories should be no longer than 2500 words.
