Editor's Note from Meagan Hughes: From Woman to Woman is a collaborative project between Musicians without Borders (Netherlands) and Snaga Žene (meaning 'Women Power') based in Bośnia i Hercegovina. The project uses music to address severe, persistent war-related trauma among women in Eastern Bosnia.
