Suzanne Mubarak International Women for Peace Movement (SMIWPM) launched
Cairo, 17 January 2004  -- The SMIWPM was launched today, holding its first Board meeting and adopting an ambitious program for action that would ensure an important presence for this first movement for women for peace that is initiated in the Arab world. Mrs. Mubarak announced the program of the movement, and presented the Board of Trustees, which included Ismail Serageldin as Treasurer. Serageldin said that he was truly inspired to see Mrs. Mubarak take this important step to institutionalize the highly successful international meeting held in Sharm el Sheikh in September 2002. Awareness training for young Egyptian women would start in February, a Regional effort in collaboration with UNIFEM was planned for May and two international seminars for late May and June, and finally a major international conference in October. In addition eminent persons would give lectures throughout the year… and that is just for the first year!
