Call to Action

Nobel Laureate’s Call to Action: #WomenPeaceKorea

25th May 2018

Nobel Women’s Initiative’s #WomenPeaceKorea: A New Era delegation with Women Cross DMZ begins tomorrow to promote peace, disarmament, and the inclusion of women in mediation.

Join a group of extraordinary women, including feminist activist Gloria Steinem, and Nobel peace laureates, Mairead Maguire and Leymah Gbowee, to call on President Moon, Chairman Kim, President Trump and President Xi, to ensure that women’s movements are included in the Korean peace process. Let’s remind them of their government’s commitment to UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, which states that women must be included in mediation processes to ensure prevention, diffusion, and resolution of major conflicts. Decades of research now show that women’s inclusion in peace processes leads to a peace agreement and a far more durable one when women help draft it. We will be in South Korea this week for the #WomenPeaceKorea: A New Era delegation to amplify this message!

We would love for all of you, to sign the petition (see link below) calling for peace on the Korean peninsula. Please also share widely on social media!
