The book introduces the 1000 women who were carefully chosen to represent the millions doing similar work around the world. Each one is presented on a double page, with a short biography and most of the women with a portrait photograph. Both, images and texts, were compiled by local journalists and authors, as well as by academics and members of organizations. The biographies give insight into the life and work of each of the 1000 women. They also reflect the cultural differences involved in evaluating personal data and build a colorful patchwork of different styles and types of biographies. The book is produced by Swiss publisher Kontrast and published internationally by Scalo.1000 PeaceWomen Across the Globe is the ultimate manifest of the Peace Women and will become a reference guide for NGOs, governments, Peace and Women's networks and Relief organizations as well as a general audience interested in grassroots movements working towards the growth of democratic civil society.
