To celebrate International Women’s Day 2010 I asked the peacebuilders we fund to tell the stories of the women they work with.
You can watch them online at www.peacedirect.org/women.
Join us in celebrating International Women’s Day – there’s a whole host of ways you can celebrate, here are just some of our suggestions.
People with clenched fists can not shake hands.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
I decided it is better to scream. Silence is the real crime against humanity.
Nadezhda Mandelstam, Russian writer, Hope Against Hope
I am only one, but still I am one.
I cannot do everything, but still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
