«1000 PeaceWomen for the Nobel Peace Prize 2005» was an historical nomination. In 2005, 1000 women from 150 countries were collectively nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of hundreds of thousands other female peace activists. The main objective of the initiative from Switzerland was to give value to the courageous, often dangerous and mostly invisible work of women for human security and justice, by giving them appropriate recognition. Unfortunately, the Nobel Peace Prize was not awarded to the women, but the worldwide campaign made their peacebuilding work more visible and helps to transport their knowledge into important peace negotiations.
PeaceWomen Across the Globe – within the organization the international team continues to build a growing, broad and strong global network of women who support human security and justice.
