Women have played, and continue to play, a prominent and critical role in conflict resolution and peace-making processes in many different parts of the world. Women in the highlands of Papua New Guinea are no exception. Drawing on my experience as a founding member of Kup Women for Peace, I shall discuss the origins, character and progress of some recent womens initiatives in Simbu Province directed at stopping endemic tribal fighting and building the foundations of a just and sustainable peace. There are two overlapping dimensions: tribal fighting and violence directed against women and girls, which I call gendered violence.
