The initiative: 1000 PeaceWomen

In 2005, the initiative 1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize nominated women working for peace at the local, national or international level collectively for the Nobel Prize. The women's profiles show that they are active in an extremely wide range of fields: they campaign for political rights, the promotion of peace, health, education, the environment, children's rights and non-violence, and they fight against organized crime and human trafficking.


The search function allows you to find out more about the PeaceWomen's backgrounds and fields of activity. The biographies represent a snapshot from 2005.

The book 1000 PeaceWomen Across the Globe, which describes the origin of the initiative and contains profiles of the PeaceWomen, was published at the time of the nomination.
