Quotes from Women, Power & Peace

Note from Marianne Schnall, founder of Feminist.com and Women, Power & Peace Media Partner: When I was writing my various articles on the Women, Power & Peace conference, I listened to my own tapes of the conference and transcribed some quotes that stood out for me to potentially use in my articles. When I was done, I realized they evoked some of the inspiring spirit of the conference, and I thought it would be wonderful to share them. So here is my personal collection of quotes - by no means is this a comprehensive accounting of all the speakers or all that went on at this amazing event, and I encourage you to purchase the CD and DVD recordings of this life-changing conference by clicking here.

Feminist.com was proud to be a media partner of the Women, Power & Peace Conference, which took place on September 14-16, 2007, organized by Omega Institute, V-Day, and the Nobel Women's Institute.
