Women’s participation is key to peace: Peace processes that include women are more successful and sustainable, and societies that empower women are more peaceful than those that do not.

To realize the demographic peace dividend, young women and men in developing countries need the healthcare, education, and employment that will prepare them to build a more peaceful and productive society.
