BEIJING PEACE TRAIN & BEYOND – WOMEN'S MEMORIES & TESTIMOMIALS 

Friday, March 13, 2015 - 10:30 to 12:00

A stimulating panel on the Beijing Peace Train and stories of solidarity in movement. The Peace Train to Beijing tells the story of 230 women and 10 men from 42 countries who cross two continents to reach the Fourth UN Conference on Women (August 7-29,1995). The train was sponsored and organized by the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). During the three-week trek from Helsinki, Finland, participants meet with women's groups and political leaders, and put theory into practice as they create a "metaphorical community" on the train.

Free and open to the public.
