“[W]omen are peace-loving creatures. . . women have a lot to contribute to this peace culture, not only by the transmission of peaceful values, but also by transmitting other values that have to do with democracy, with the sharing of power, with fairness of treatment. Peace is more than the absence of war. Peace is the only possibility that exists for all humanity.” (UN Secretariat News, Summer 1995, p. 6; photo elporvenir.com)
