Based in Switzerland and with coordinators in various countries, PeaceWomen Across the Globe is an international network of women who work persistently and courageously for peace, security and justice in many regions of the world – even when their life is in danger and their work is overshadowed by setbacks. In 2005, one thousand women from all over the world were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Previously, the creative, yet often dangerous peace work by women had neither been integrated into official peace processes nor acknowledged by the public. This unique campaign sought to make this work visible. The campaign led to the formation of a strong and global women’s peace network.
