The advent of women's activities of this type began in the mid-1980s, behind the scenes at the UN women's conference in Nairobi, continued in the occupied territories, and were launched more formally during the first intifada (primarily through the Jerusalem Link based upon two independent women's peace centers- The Jerusalem Center for Women and Bat Shalom- established to advance the active involvement of Palestinian and Israeli women in achieving peace and social justice).
