Women are often not perceived to have the skills, knowledge or social status needed to bring about change in their communities. Our actions and engagements are always misinterpreted. We are castigated and ridiculed as women peacebuilders.
As a woman, I stand tall in the midst of all my adversaries.
Women support women in engaging in dialogue and recognizing new mediation actors and their approaches. Women stand tall even though they lack adequate access to security, limited access to education and health. Nevertheless, economic and social services are significant challenges facing women in conflict regions in Cameroon.
Despite these shortcomings we are committed as women peacebuilders to implementing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, UN resolution 1325 and ensure women's participation at every level. Women's voices are part of the solution to the crisis and our voices count.
As women, our participation is crucial in changing gender discrimination and stopping hate speech. It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. “Knowing what’s right doesn’t mean much unless you do what’s right.” Woman Stand Tall.#NoWomanNoPeace
