Women, Resilience, and Global Peace Movements

Published: May 1, 2010, Author: AngelSupport

The Institute for the Future recently issued their Ten Year Forecast, released at the Ten Year Forecast in Sausalito, CA. Along with materials from the retreat, on the website I happened on a post by TYF Program Manager Tessa Finlev, “Increasing Global Resilience: Women Becoming Key Players in Peace Movements.”She dutifully notes the lack of media coverage on women’s role in peace and conflict-resolution movements and cites examples from Africa to illustrate this phenomenon. She add that highlighting their roles can help increase global resilience.
