International women's peace conference convenes

During The Second Week Of October , women religious and spiritual leaders from around the world met in Geneva, Switzerland, to explore ways in which they can—specifically as women—bring their varied experiences to bear on peace efforts around the world.

The event was organized in response to the United Nations-sponsored Millennium World Peace Summit, held in New York two years ago. At that conference, only 15 percent of the delegates were women. The organizers of this Geneva conference recognized the need for women to play a greater part in the peace process.
