“Visibility – Connectivity – Expertise” Mission

PWAG’s main goals in the last decade have been to support deeper and more sustainable connectivity between PeaceWomen across the globe. We do this by increasing the visibility of their work, expanding their knowledge and skills and disseminating their expertise outside their own spheres of influence.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this project, PWAG is embarking on a “visibility-connectivity-expertise” project that documents and highlights the work of not only the one thousand women nominated in 2005 for the Nobel Peace Prize, but of millions of women working in all fields of human security, conflict resolution, ecological security, environmental justice, health, education and legislation among others. We are doing this primarily through the “WikiPeaceWomen” website, to document the women’s stories. The project is also expanding the network by connecting PeaceWomen across different backgrounds and languages.

We are going to achieve our goal through the expertise of former and new coordinators from all over the world as well as those who were connected to the 1000 PeaceWomen project. In addition, we have the support of thousands of volunteers who have related in various ways to the PWAG project in the last decade. The process of inviting thousands and millions of PeaceWomen stories to be written and translated will be a process of re-activation of the interest and commitment of old and new coordinators from different regions of the world, and a broad network of partners will be formed.

The goal of this global campaign is to collect thousands of PeaceWomen stories by 2020.
