This past October, several thousand women marched from Rosh Hanikra, on the Lebanese border, to the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem, in the name of peace.

The group responsible for this two-week journey known as the March of Hope is the two-year-old grassroots organization Women Wage Peace. The march brought together not only Israeli-Jewish women, but also Israeli-Arab, Palestinian, Druse, Beduin, Muslim and Christian women and men to raise awareness to their cause.
