Abstract

The gender focus contained in the Peace Agreement between the Colombian Government and the guerilla group FARC-EP has been internationally recognized as a watershed moment that could contribute to future peace processes around the world. This inclusion would not have been possible without the constants struggles of the women’s movements representing displaced people, peasants, and feminists, among others. Long before the negotiations even started, Colombian women had been actively working to build peace in the midst of the conflict. Despite the importance of their achievements, the road has not been easy. To include a gender perspective stimulated intense debates revealing that peace goes far beyond a truce between negotiating parties. The transitions needed for a sustainable peace requires changes in the imagination of the civil society to overcome the rooted cultural and discriminatory patterns that prevent Colombian society to move forward.
