Millions of women are engaged daily in working towards a better
future. Without regard for their own safety, they are active on behalf
of the community's well-being. They call for reconciliation, demand
justice, and rebuild what has been destroyed. They work on the front in
crisis and war regions, as well as in the background all over the world.
The project and book 1000 Peace Women Across the Globe have tried to
draw the world’s attention to these women and their thus far nearly
invisible, but highly important work, and to have them nominated for the
Nobel Peace Prize 2005. The book introduces the 1000 women who were
carefully chosen to represent the millions doing similar work around the
world. Each one is presented on a double page, with a short biography
and most of the women with a portrait photograph. Both, images and
texts, were compiled by local journalists and authors, as well as by
academics and members of organizations.
1000 Peace Women Across the Globe is the ultimate manifesto of the
Peace Women and will become a reference guide for NGOs, governments,
peace and women’s networks and relief organizations as well as a general
audience interested in grassroots movements working towards the growth
of democratic civil society.
