This anthology on compassionate societies and cultures of peace was edited by WLP president and CEO, Mahnaz Afkhami. The collection was inspired by the presentations and discussions about cultures of peace at the November 1997 Symposium at Stanford University, co-sponsored by the Global Fund for Women and the Sisterhood is Global Institute, and later conversations with activists and writers on the same topic at the State of the World Forum in San Francisco, California.
