Mission: The nature of warfare has changed. It is no longer soldiers who bear the brunt of war. Studies reveal ninety percent of all casualties in modern conflicts are civilians, the majority of them women and children. It is also recognized that a balance of women's and men's voices are requisite for successful peace negotiation and implementation. Yet, female perspectives continue to be disempowered. Where are their voices at the peace table? Where is the support for women's work on every level? And how can women empower themselves in building peace? PEACE X PEACE is a nonprofit organization casting light on the work women are doing for peace on all levels, from the most grassroots efforts to the highest levels of government. PEACE X PEACE supports, educates and connects women locally and globally, empowering them to build the conditions necessary for sustainable peace.

Peace X Peace is an organisation that continually raises women's voices and works for peace. It is a well know fact that women are the peacemakers of the world and Peace X Peace gives women from all over the world the chance to voice their opinions, their ideas and their skills. Women from all over the world, from all cultures, from all religions, from all beliefs can communicate with one another and help break down barriers that exist within all of these groups. 'If civilisation is to advance at all in the future, it must be through the help of women, women freed of their political shackles, women with full power to work their will in society' (Emmeline Pankhurst 1857-1928). These words are still so relevant in the world today and Peace X Peace is working towards bringing these words to life!

Peace X Peace publishes Voices from the Frontlines, which I find to be incredibly inspiring and unique. When I am struggling with my own purpose and direction, I find Voices from the Frontlines to be a comforting reminder of the many people working to make the world a better and more peaceful place.

I receive regular emails from Peace X Peace describing the work of many people working for peace. Each issue focuses on a theme. I am impressed with the information they offer. I am learning about people like John Hunter, creator of the World Peace Game. Today, I read about a woman in Washington, DC, who spends time with children from a poor area, giving them the opportunity to learn about love and respect. Peace X Peace is about walking the walk, not just talking the talk. Everyone they highlight is actively participating in creating a just and peaceful society.

My experience with Peace X Peace has been as a colleague in other organisations working for global peace and unity. I find their work professional, inspiring and engaging, and I am impressed with their ability to engage a broad range of people and tell stories that bring good attention to the cause.

PeacexPeace keeps me informed on important global issues. Knowing women active in the organization and hearing their stories has made me more aware of issues around the world. I have joined several initiatives and contributed to several causes based on what I have learned from Peacexpeace.

I find this hyper space/community because you hear more voices, voices that otherwise would go unnoticed. I am a baby member of the community, but so far I am blown away by the information and the possibilities and doors it opens.

PeaceXPeace offers a special online gathering place for women to share their stories of peacemaking and their concerns about issues of the day in a moderated forum. The posted articles, blog and Peace Times provide fascinating opinion and insight from women around the world. Their new initiative Connection Point focuses on conversations between women in the Islamic world and women in the West, often with poignant and dramatic narratives. Now, more than ever, PeaceXPeace is relevant.

PeacexPeace is one of the best networking areas to engender cross cultural communication and understanding. The more we talk and listen to each other, the better we will understand each other, worldwide. PeacexPeace does this. It is an exceptional place of enlightenment and forward thinking.
