"Women are key advocates of peace, whether monitoring ceasefire violations and advocating for the creation of a nursery within a cantonment site for ex-combatants or negotiating the laying down and destroying of weapons. By naturally humanizing every aspect of conflict or post-conflict work, women influence how peace is fostered. The peace can be more sustainable, the more women contribute to peace processes whether civilians or not.”
