For peace and gender justice

"Feminist peace  work means making women's peace  work visible and usable for sustainable peace processes. Because peace is never a military project, but always a civilian project - a collective women's project.”

Ruth-Gaby Vermot-Mangold, Co-President and Founder of PeaceWomen Across the Globe
