Review for Peace X Peace, Washington, DC, USA
Peace X Peace began in 2002, when Patricia Smith Melton gathered six experts in peace and women's rights from around the world to discuss how they might maintain peace and improve women’s rights globally. Peace X Peace has been the first women’s global effective social movement network for cross-cultural dialogue. This organization listens to women’s needs, tries to solve their difficulties and motivates them to explore in order to achieve their highest goals inside and outside of the U.S. Peace X Peace has and had many well known publications such as, “Week X Week”, “be the Change: Person X Person”, “Peace Times” and “Voices from the frontlines.” Voices of women have always been valued and honored through this online global network. Peace X Peace provides opportunities to its members by giving women voices and also encouraging them to speak up. Peace X Peace conveys the message to all women over the world that peace is gained by working together. It begins with an individual and it continues with groups, parties, and nations. This feminist organization collaborates, rather than competes, with organizations that have congruent goals. Peace X Peace honored the voices of two distinguished Afghan women and awarded them “Power and Peace Awards”. Peace X Peace educates and encourages younger women to become the future leaders of their country. It is a women-led social movement and Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that multiplies the power of women globally through the usage of internet and other forms of technology. Peace X Peace helps to build sustainable peace and a civil society. Thanks to this wonderful organization and its wonderful life long members who worked and have been working hard to promote peace and unity globally. Many thanks to the founder of such an amazing organization Mrs. Patricia Smith Melton, who is still supporting and encouraging peace worldwide. Thanks to Mrs. Patricia (Pat) Morris, who worked really hard to make this organization very diverse and peaceful. Moreover, many sincere thanks to Mrs. Furthermore, thanks to Mary Liepold, who worked extremely very hard to convey the voices of women to everyone all over the world. She has worked hard to find and communicate with women all over the world directly by the telephone and also via email. I cannot forget when I was back home in Afghanistan, for the first time we talked over a online telephone conversation.
Every individual member of Peace x Peace is extraordinary wonderful and open-minded such as Molly Mayfield Barbee, Lynn McClintock, Linda Higdon, Alicia Simoni Liora Herman, KimWeichel, and many other distinguished staff that for just right now I cannot recall their beautiful names, each one of these wonderful people worked for this organization at some point in the past and some are still there. And now some new staff are joining to promote peace globally such as Caroline Anderson.
