International Women’s Day

Hi I just wanted to follow up on the International Women’s Day post. Since we have been focusing on the development of the ICC along with the concept of peace and justice, I wanted to highlight the campaign Join Me On The Bridge. The Join me on the Bridge campaign started in 2010 when women from Congo and Rwanda joined together on the bridge connecting their two countries, showing that they could build the bridges of peace and hope for the future. This group advocates for women to be involved in ongoing peace negotiations to build a stronger and lasting peace in countries that have been fighting for years. I wanted to highlight this group because often times we focus on women’s rights from the perpetrators of crimes as males and victims as females, but this group emphasizes that women need to be equal playing partners in adjudicating justice and involved in negotiating peace terms.
