Ruta Pacifica de las Mujeres (Pacific Route of Women)
The Pacific Route is a feminist movement with national political action, which works for the negotiated processing of the armed conflict in Colombia and to make visible the impact of the war on the life and body of women; it is a pacifist, antimilitarist and builder of an ethic of Nonviolence in which justice, peace, equity, autonomy, freedom and the recognition of otherness are fundamental principles.
It emerged publicly in 1996 in response to the serious situation of violence experienced by women in conflict zones, both rural and urban. In the years of existence, it has built a model of action that is maintained and perfected as part of its methods of action such as: mobilization (more than 100,000 women mobilized in the country), sit-ins, training, strengthening of women's organizations in the territories, advocacy, psychosocial and legal support, and knowledge management are part of their organizational legacy. All this aimed at the construction of a social subject to achieve changes in favor of women's rights.See more
