Review:

Researchers, practitioners, and students of peace studies, international relations, women and gender studies, and religious studies will engage with this important material which provides a much needed analysis and synthesis of the role of gender and religion in world conflict and peacebuilding. --Carol K. Coburn, Professor in Religious Studies and Women's Studies, Director of the CSJ Heritage Center, Avila University

2015 marks the 15th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 that acknowledged the link between women's agency and building sustainable peace. The vision of the resolution, however, has not been matched by the political will necessary to advance women's critical leadership in peace and security. Women, Religion and Peacebuilding is a timely volume that concretely illustrates the difference women are making in this case, religious women across all the major faith traditions. Despite significant obstacles and efforts to marginalize them, these women are on the frontlines of change as the case studies show from the Philippines to Sri Lanka. Sadly, their important contributions all-too-often go unrecognized, are neglected or are even hindered by their own religious institutions or by governments and other NGOs. Hayward and Marshall make a compelling case. Women, Religion and Peacebuilding is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the role of faith-based women's active leadership and to contribute to peace in a world mired in conflict. --Ambassador Melanne Verveer, Director, Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace & Security

Complex power structures and dynamics are difficult to change for any one or few individuals. What has been missing is the space for a critical mass of voices and ideas from women and men supporters who have proven their value as leaders by being inclusive problem solvers and agents of positive change. This collection of chapters is a valuable contribution to this shift toward peacemaking that includes women faith leaders, a potent resource that is very much needed. --Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter

Book Description United States Institute of Peace Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Many women working for peace around the world are motivated by their religious beliefs, whether they work within secular or religious organizations. These women often find themselves sidelined or excluded from mainstream peacebuilding efforts. Secular organizations can be uncomfortable working with religious groups. Meanwhile, religious institutions often dissuade or even disallow women from leadership positions. Women, Religion, and Peacebuilding: Illuminating the Unseen shows how women determined to work for peace have faced these obstacles in ingenious ways suggesting, by example, ways that religious and secular organizations might better include them in larger peacebuilding campaigns and make those campaigns more effective in ending conflict.The first part of the book examines the particular dynamics of women of faith working toward peace within Catholicism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism. The second part contains case studies of women peacebuilders in Africa, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, detailing how their faiths have informed their work, what roles religious institutions have played as they have moved forward, what accomplishments have resulted from their efforts, and what challenges remain. An appendix of interviews offers further perspectives from peacebuilders, both women and men.Ultimately, Women, Religion, and Peacebuilding is a call to change the paradigm of peacebuilding inside and outside of the world s faiths, to strengthen women s abilities to work for peace and, in turn, improve the chances that major efforts to end conflicts around the world succeed.EDITORS: Susan Hayward and Katherine MarshallCONTRIBUTORS: Maryann Cusimano Love S.
