Hello all and welcome to Women in Foreign Policy's Book Club!

We are so excited about this new addition to WIFP and really want to get to know you all. As tomorrow is May 1st and the official start date of our bookclub it would be great to hear who you are, where you're from and why you're interested in reading about women and foreign policy.

So to start with - Hi, I'm Tash! I have been interning with WIFP since the start of the year and I help out with organising the different events that we put on. I love all things women and foreign policy - especially since studying for my masters in Gender and International Relations. Now that I'm no longer studying and reading everyday I have a huge void in my life that needs to be filled! At the moment I'm based in London - which hopefully means I'll get to meet some of you soon.

Please feel free to add to this discussion in the coming days introducing yourself in whatever way you'd like. If you have any questions please ask away or send me a message. Just a reminder that our first book is This Child Will Be Great: Memoir of a Remarkable Life by Africa's First Woman President - so pick up a copy and enjoy!

This Child Will Be Great Memoir of a Remarkable Life by Africa's First Woman President by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

Sanja Asikainen | 2 comments Hello,

My name is Sanja and I'm very excited about this book club! I'm finishing up my master's studies in international affairs in Geneva, and from this summer onwards I'll be back in Helsinki for some time. This means that unfortunately I won't be able to join the book club meetings in London, but I'll be happy to participate in the online discussions.

Thank you for organising!
