Only 13 percent of peace negotiators are women. What is it like to be one of them? Join women peace negotiators from Colombia, the Philippines, and Northern Ireland to hear their stories and reflections on the difference that women make at the peace table. This event commemorates the 20th anniversary of UNSCR 1325 and celebrates a new season of the Seeking Peace podcast, which amplifies stories of women peace builders like Elena, Miriam, and Monica.
