Women’s Leadership to End Gender-based Violence: URL-Quetzaltenango professors and students along with SU faculty and students are collaborating on a multi-year, multi-sited qualitative research project about women’s civil society leadership to end gender-based violence in Guatemala. In 2014, SU professors Kristi Lee and Serena Cosgrove piloted a research methodology with support from the Seattle International Foundation which led to their SJSJ publication (see publications). In 2017, 2018, and 2019, they were joined by URL professors and students to expand the research in Quetzaltenango and other parts of the Western Highlands of Guatemala.
