PeaceWomen Across the Globe’s (PWAG) overall purpose is to increase the visibility of women peacebuilders and support their efforts for peace and justice. The organization grew from the initiative to nominate 1000 women for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005. Our mission is to foster connections among women peacebuilders, strengthen their efforts and make their peace work visible by engaging in cooperative projects, building mutual expertise and exchanging information. We advocate for the integration of women in all activities that contribute to increasing human security.
The goals of the organization are:
1) promoting the participation of women at all levels of society and politics
2) curbing violence against women
3) encouraging women to be involved in peace work
