Building a Lasting Peace: Where Are the Women?
Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014, 7-8:30 p.m. EST
The Elders along with women peace builders will explore what can be done to prevent conflicts, combat cultural norms, and ensure women are part of peace-making efforts. This event promotes the recommendation on women's role in peace building set out in President Carter's acclaimed recent book "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power." Carter Center CEO Ambassador (ret.) Mary Ann Peters will moderate the discussion and Q&A.
Founded in 2007, The Elders are a group of independent leaders, convened by Nelson Mandela, who work together for peace and human rights. There are 12 Elders including President Carter, Kofi Annan (Chair of The Elders), and Mary Robinson.
