Ruta Pacífica de las Mujeres

La Ruta Pacifica 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 lives and bodies of women; it is a pacifist, anti-militarist and builder of an ethic of non-violence in which justice, peace, equity, autonomy, freedom and the recognition of otherness are fundamental principles.

It emerged publicly in 1996 as a response to the serious situation of violence experienced by women in conflict zones, both rural and urban.

In the years of its 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 its organizational legacy. All this aimed at the construction of a social subject to achieve changes in favor of women’s rights.

Currently, the Women’s Peaceful Route seeks to increase the political participation of women in the community, regional and national spheres; advance in the construction of peace through the Peace Agreement with the implementation of the 130 gender measures; strengthen comprehensive political-organizational and psychosocial accompaniment actions with women victims of the armed conflict and increase the empowerment of women in the territories that carry out different actions with the Route.
