10 Years PeaceWomen Across the Globe

In 2005, I signed the letter to the Nobel Prize Committee containing the names of 1000 women committed to peace. Women, men and children are victims of conflicts and wars that shake our planet. More civilians die than soldiers. The social, economic and environmental consequences affect everyone, but only too often women are left alone to bear them. Women must have their say at the negotiating tables; they are primarily concerned. We must listen to women, also in situations of war.
Micheline Calmy-Rey, former Swiss Minister of External Affairs

My dear fellow activists, I am encouraging you to change your activism into passion if we are to build a peaceful world.  We all know that men craft wars; therefore women must craft peace.  One can do either or. No one succeeds in doing both. As we celebrate and congratulate PeaceWomen Across the Globe on the 10th Anniversary; it is a reminder to all of us especially the young generation that the world  still need peace and women must present the long lasting solution.
Justine Mbabazi Rukeba, International Lawyer and activist

The worldwide network of PeaceWomen Across the Globe is unique. Come join us and meet our PeaceWomen for discussing and exchanging experiences! Our jubilee on 22 and 23 October 2015 in Bern is a great occasion for it. Together we advance peace. I also call the Swiss authorities to reinforce their commitment to peace. This includes more contributions to the very active peace organizations of Swiss civil society!
Margret Kiener Nellen, Swiss parliament member and board member of PWAG

The human history consists of wars of men that turn women and children into victims. It is time that women decide on war and peace, because women don’t choose aggression but peace! The "PeaceWomen" are especially committed to that goal – all over the world. 
Ellen Ringier, Swiss lawyer and Publisher 

It has been an honour and a passion for me to have been an integral part first of the 100 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize 2005 and subsequently of Peace Women Across the Globe. This global campaign led by a group of passionate peace activists from different parts of the world redefined peace, made women's peace work visible, and strengthened and widened the global feminist network for peace. As a result of our ongoing advocacy, several women have been given the Nobel Peace Prize since 2003 and women's role and participation in peace talks has been recognised.In 2015 we are  celebrating the JUBILEE of  Peace Women Across the Globe to renew our commitment, energise the peace movements and strengthening global solidarity for peace.
Kamla Bhasin, PWAG co-president

The 1000 PeaceWomen accompany me for many years and give me strength. Knowing that there is a network of female energy, against the insanity of war and violence, is vital for me and for many others.
Monika Stocker, Co-initiator of “1000 women for the Nobel peace prize 2005”, Swiss politician 

Numerous war and conflict regions unfortunately still show the importance of an untiring and persistent commitment to peace. For the last ten years this has been the work of "PeaceWomen Across the Globe" – it will remain necessary and important.
Ursula Wyss, Director of Civil Engineering, Transport and Green City, City of Bern
