Although they are not only victims of the war in South Sudan but also those with the power to provide leadership, women have been widely excluded from any peace process until recently. Meanwhile, regional peace and security is being mortgaged away in South Sudan by men who believe the only solution to the conflict comes through the barrel of a gun. It is time for women to intervene and push for alternative solutions for peace in South Sudan.
