The Women’s Federation for World Peace International, together with Women’s Federation for World Peace, Japan, held their annual Women’s Conference for Peace in the Middle East on May 16-19, 2005 in a tranquil and picturesque setting along the sea coast just outside of Athens, Greece. The issue of this year’s conference was chosen in order to address the gaps between the goals and vision for the Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for our Children (2001-2010) and their implementation at this mid-term mark with hopes of reinvigorating the process. In attendance were thirty nine women leaders from 15 Middle Eastern countries and Palestine including ministers, congresswomen and experts in the fields of education, youth, development, human rights and law, government and non-governmental relations, com-munications and media, finance, health and environment.
