Historically, the humanity has been silent about the role of women in war, almost as silent as the women excluded from peace negotiations. Images that are negative for the individual and for society in general. . . [One of the] two main principles of peace journalism. . . is that all parties in a conflict must be heard. It is possible to put a gender perspective on conflict reporting to see its gender roles patterns. It is a fact that many civil society peace initiatives are taken by women. But women's peace efforts and peace proposals are seldom seen in the media.” (quote & photo Peace Portal [])
