Women at the Peace Table

I haven't found a single reference that would suggest any woman was involved in the high level decisions that have led to our present war. Who is protesting this? Surely women have at least as great a stake in war as men, perhaps even more. And where is our voice?

It is my hope that women's organizations will start right now pushing for representation in the peace talks. And something more than tokenism, something more than a safe political appointment, and a great deal more than window-dressers. The actual numbers should come close to 50%.

It is not too early to start.
