Women demand a voice in peace process

10 years have passed since since the United Nations passed a resolution saying that women should be involved in peace negotiations and peace-building measures in conflict areas around the world.

But at a Stockholm discussion of what seems like a self-evident support for women helping to end war, conflict and aggression, some critics point out that women and non-government organizations in general rarely get a chance to make their voices heard.

One of these is Lena Ag, the head of the Sweden’s internationally-minded "Kvinnor till Kvinnor - Women to Women."

Another is Sanam Anderlini - international activist and writer, born in Iran and now a resident of Washington DC in the United States.
