Conflict
Rwanda. Bosnia. Iraq. Afghanistan. We have just ended the bloodiest century on record. What will life be like for us in the century to come? How are young women dealing with conflict in their countries? Will the world be any more peaceful in the next 30 years? Are we really in the midst of a ‘clash of civilizations,’ or is something else going on?

Young women from virtually every hot spot in the world speak to us in this section—giving you access to on-the-ground perspectives behind the headlines. Irena Paskali shows us beautiful, heart-wrenching films about her experiences of the war in the former (and present) Yugoslavia. Pireeni Sundaralingam shares poems about her family surviving the conflict in Sri Lanka.

Can we really overcome cycles of retribution and violence? Perhaps we’ll get closer with your help. After you read these stories, be sure to check out our featured partner this month, the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (http://ifor.org/wpp.htm). You’ll find many tools and structures to encourage young women to get involved in peacemaking and conflict resolution efforts all across the globe.
