24 May is International Women’s Day for Peace and Disarmament. This week’s vigil highlights what women around the world, from Israel to Korea, are doing for peace and against war. At the same time, Rebecca Johnson, a London Women in Black and founding President of ICAN, is in South Korea, as part of the Women Cross the DMZ (Deminitarized Zone) initiative. You can read more about this initiative here.
