Global Action and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom released a report in October 2005 highlighting the diverse and innumerable contributions of women to conflict prevention. Women have traditionally been more active in conflict prevention and in finding longer-term solutions to reduce the potential for violence, including human rights, development, justice and human security. At great personal risk, women are working daily to prevent conflict and promote the health, security and education of the most vulnerable in society. The next installment of the report highlighting women and participation will be released in 2010. (Global Action)
