Earlier this year, a group of women from Libya came together. From doctors, to professors, to housekeepers —they all shared a common vision — to build peace in Libya.

The dialogue provided a safe space for women, to share their experiences, stories of change, and importantly, to draw up a roadmap for how Libyan women can build peace in their everyday life.
