Women's Workshop, April 2009

45 Women leaders gather to discuss gender, women’s rights, reconciliation, and the role of women in peace-building in a workshop organized by the Sudan Council of Churches.

Women leaders say:

“We have a role to play [in peace-making]—not only to eat, give birth and die.”

“We have been trained and we need to go and build the capacity of women in our homes and churches. Who will come and bring that change? Time has come for us to have that change in the south or the north, wherever we go. Money is not everything. If we are determined, we can do anything.”
