Ambassador Swanee Hunt, Ph.D., captured a series of about 100 photographs in a collection entitled “Witness” during and after she served as U.S. ambassador to Austria.

The collection includes pictures from sub-Saharan countries, where she was inspired by the women leaders who prevented and stopped violent conflict. She calls them “women waging peace.”

The collection was gifted to Howard University and will be displayed within the new Center for Women, Gender and Global Leadership and the Undergraduate Commons (formerly Undergraduate Library).


This story appears in the Spring 2021 issue.
