On May 24, 2015 thirty women peacemakers from fifteen countries, including two Nobel Peace Laureates, crossed the De-Militarized Zone from North to South Korea on International Women’s Day for Peace and Disarmament. They held peace symposia with hundreds of Korean women in Pyongyang and Seoul and walked with 10,000 women on the streets of Pyongyang, Kaesong and Paju. They walked to call world attention to the un-ended Korean war, unite families, and ensure women’s leadership in the peace building process.

Come learn about this historic women’s peace crossing and the continuing work of WomenCrossDMZ to chart a path for peace on the Korean peninsula, including their latest women’s peace convening in Indonesia amid heightened military and political tensions.
