"We women of Colombia, we will not continue giving birth sons and daughters for war!" (“Mujeres valorosas,” June 21, 2011)
“War made us booty, as victims, our families torn away, it drove us out of the land, and we inherited despair and tears. Women opted for political negotiation, because we paid too high a price for the violence, war and injustice. It is essential work to rebuild the social fabric."
