Women Waging Peace gives women a leading role in addressing conflictInclusive Security: Women Waging Peace is a program aimed at promoting the involvement of women in addressing conflict around the world. Its primary goals include:

building a network of women peacemakers;

making the case that women make vital contributions to conflict prevention, peace negotiations, and post-conflict reconstruction efforts; and

shaping public policy by generating support from policymakers for women’s agency in promoting security.”

Because women“are adept at bridging ethnic, religious, political, and cultural divides,” Women Waging Peace aspires to empower women throughout the world to play an instrumental role in addressing and resolving conflict wherever it occurs.
