From the Desk Of….

GetAttachment.aspx “From the Desk Of…” is my new initiative this year to challenge the dominant narratives about international peace and security by sharing notable quotes, anecdotes, prose and poems about women, peace and security.  Do you have something you would like to share from your desk? Drop me a line!

Quote for the week…

“Prisoners used to be afraid of even looking at victims…But with time they came and asked for forgiveness because we encouraged them. Those who were released help us in fetching water, renovate our houses and to do our gardens. In return we give them food.”

–Rwandan women, widowed during the 1994 genocide, Women Building Peace by Sanam Anderlini
