The case study’s findings indicate that a lasting peace is only possible where women’s voices and views are included through the process. Therefore, women’s participation in and support of the national peace efforts is vitally important. A quick review of literature reviewed in this paper, indicates that between 1990 and 2014 as many as 130 peace agreements were signed with only 13 peace agreements with women in a signatory authority. All agreements with women as participants at a signatory level were more durable than the agreements only signed by men. Additionally, the involvement of women in peace processes resulted in a stronger integration of human rights, transitional justice, national reconciliation, and subsequent women’s involvement in the decision-making processes at the local and national levels.
