Celebrating women peacemakers

Wednesday, March 8, is International Women's Day. Pax Christi International is encouraging all members, friends, and supporters to celebrate women peacemakers on this special day. Several women from throughout the Pax Christi International network have compiled a list of 10 actions you can undertake on Wednesday (or even in the days following) to celebrate women peacemakers and lift up the witness of women working for peace in Pax Christi and all across the world. These ten actions have been posted on a special page dedicated to International Women's Day.

On this page of resources, you'll find downloadable postcards, prayer resources, inspirational videos and more. See: www.paxchristi.net/international-womens-day-2017

A special live-streamed event is being held at the Vatican on Wednesday by Voices of Faith honouring women peacemakers. Pax Christi International Co-President Marie Dennis is one of the speakers and Secretary General Greet Vanaerschot will be in attendance as well.
