OEF Celebrates Women Seeding Peace Across Our Global Communities

Peace Women

It is well documented that women are critical participants in all aspects of society and positive social change, not least of all in achieving peace and stability around the world. The full and meaningful leadership, empowerment, and protection of women is essential to resolving deadly conflict and building stable, prosperous, and just post-conflict societies. Yet gender equality continues to be overlooked in related projects and policies.

Every day, One Earth Future’s work orchestrating peacebuilding programs around the world is being led by women who are dedicated to solving complex problems at the root of conflict in their communities. We see this across diverse fields, from the entrepreneurial startup of small businesses in rural villages to the negotiation and implementation of peace agreements; from the coastal fisheries sector to the international maritime law and security domain; and from national policy setting to international nuclear safety and decision-making.

As OEF continues to pursue its mission and commitment to include and support women, we will continue to collect and share stories to recognize achievements that may inspire yours. We will feature women’s leadership that carries out crucial daily commerce activities, strengthens the economic development sector, provides opportunities in post-conflict communities, and plays an equal part in shaping our world.

Women are planting the seeds of peace to build resilient societies and a more peaceful world. #WomenSeedingPeace     #SembradorasDePaz     #BeertaNabadda
