Women Speak Out for Peace

Posted on


On September 21, 2015 the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders will be commemorating again the International Peace Day. This year’s theme “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All” aims to highlight the importance of all segments of society to work together to strive for peace.

We use this global momentum to invite all of you to take part in the Women Speak Out for Peace: A Global Media Campaign. This wide-reaching campaign will take place from September 21 to 27, 2015.

This is a great opportunity for us to transform the dominant images of women in the media as victims to those of peacebuilders, decision-makers and change agents. It is also an opportunity to further raise awareness and knowledge of UNSCR 1325, 1820, and the supporting Women, Peace and Security (WPS) resolutions globally.
