    On March 26, 2013 the International Rescue Committee presented a Briefing from the Field webcast with Aisha Bain, the IRC’s Women’s Protection & Empowerment Advocacy Officer for the Democratic Republic of Congo. Aisha shared firsthand accounts and photographs to show us another side of life for women in Congo. Though they face grave dangers and obstacles every day, these women are overcoming them – transforming not only their own lives but those of their children, families, and communities. Aisha’s work with the IRC helps these women, who are visionaries, not victims. Learn more about the IRC's work in Congo at http://www.rescue.org/where/democratic_republic_congo
