S. Korea
N. Korea

Thirty women peacemakers from 15 countries made a historic crossing of the two-mile wide De-Militarised Zone (DMZ) from North to South Korea on 24th of May, the International Women’s Day for Peace and Disarmament. They called global attention to the need for a peace treaty to finally end the Korean War; to reunite families long separated by Korea’s division; and to assure women’s participation in the peace process. Because most citizens of North and South Korea are not allowed to cross the DMZ, international women crossed the DMZ on their behalf in solidarity with Korean women’s desires for peace and reunification of Korea. This document is the final outcome statement of the 2015 Women's Walk for Peace in Korea.
