Category Archives : Million PeaceWomen

The aim of the WikiPeaceWomen project is to expand the bodies of knowledge and skills of not only the Thousand PeaceWomen nominated in 2005 for the Nobel Peace Prize, but those of a Million PeaceWomen working in all fields of human security, conflict resolution, ecological security, environmental justice, health, education, legislation, and others. While their work will be made visible and recognized, their expertise will also be disseminated outside their current spheres of influence, so as to contribute to different levels ranging from the communities to the global. Included in the documentation of the stories will be a Recommendation Section which invites the PeaceWomen to articulate their recommendations for good practices. The goal is to reach one million stories by 2020. This will be a global campaign involving a million people to relate to the WikiPeaceWomen project. Here are the profiles of Million PeaceWomen.
