Last Thursday we were invited with Women of the Sun, the new Palestinian women’s movement, to the residence of the Swedish Ambassador in Israel, for a discussion on the role of women in bottom-up peace building. Among the guests were diplomatic personnel from Canada, Norway, Switzerland, Russia, Poland, and more, including H.E. Lisa Stadelbauer, the Canadian ambassador, and H.E. Kåre Aas, the Norwegian ambassador.
Together we discussed various barriers to peace and the power of women to tackle those barriers and change the reality and future of our region.
We would like to thank all attendees for a fruitful discussion and especially the honorable Swedish ambassador H.E. Erik Ullenhag for the wonderful hospitality and invaluable support.
