Suraya Pakzad of Afghanistan speaks at the 2014 JFK Jr. Forum, “Can Women Stop War?,” alongside Irene Santiago of The Philippines and Ambassador Mathilde Mukantabana of Rwanda. The event was moderated by Ambassador Swanee Hunt (far left) and also featured women leaders from Colombia and Syria.
Across the globe, women are mobilizing against the violence and insecurity tearing apart their communities and nations. In Syria, they are standing up to the advance of the Islamic State. When tribes clash in Kenya or Nigeria, they are the first to say “Enough.” Facing grave risks, women make peace stick by bridging ruinous divides.
For the 16th annual forum in this “Inclusive Security” series, join senior government and civil society leaders as they speak about their experiences preventing violence, ending conflict, and defying extremism. Ambassador Swanee Hunt, Eleanor Roosevelt Lecturer in Public Policy, will moderate the discussion with experts from Brazil, Kenya, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Syria.
