Peace in Colombia: How Women Shaped the Deal
In This Video
Women played an important role in securing the Colombian peace agreement, which ended the longest armed conflict in the Western Hemisphere. The video was played at the 2017 Hillary Rodham Clinton awards ceremony, hosted by the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security. Secretary Clinton bestowed awards on four Colombians who helped to ensure the successful outcome of Colombian peace efforts: Humberto De la Calle, Maria Paulina Riveros, Elena Ambrosi and Jineth Bedoya. The video builds on a research study that was conducted by the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security.
