Pandora's Box 2006: Women & Peace

The theme of this year’s edition was “Women and Peace”, which derived from the focus of the 2006 International Women’s Day celebration “Women Striving for a Peaceful Society”. This edition aimed to recognise that although peace is still not a reality for many women throughout the world, there are many dedicated individuals striving for a peaceful society both in Australia and internationally. We hope that reading the 2006 edition of Pandora’s Box not only provokes consideration of the daily struggles of many women towards peace but also inspires action as exemplified by the women identified within this edition.
