The Latecomer: The Life and Work of Zarina Salamat of Pakistan

The Latecomer: The Life and Work of Zarina Salamat of Pakistan

Ratings: (0)|Views: 111 |Likes:
Zarina Salamat was for several years the chairperson of the Pakistan-India Peoples Forum for Peace and Democracy (PIPFPD) in Islamabad and a leader in the Citizens’ Peace Committee. She says that Pakistan came late to the peace movement, as did she. For most of her life, Salamat had been a social scientist researcher; it was not until the passing of her husband in 1994 that her peace activities began to take center stage. After she joined PIPFPD, India and then Pakistan exploded nuclear devices in May 1998. Salamat organized protests against both, in the midst of great hostility from extremist groups.

 ABOUT THE WOMEN PEACEMAKERS PROGRAM
Made possible through a generous grant from the Fred J. Hansen Foundation, the Joan B.Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice’s (IPJ) Women PeaceMakers Program annually hosts four womenfrom around the world who have been involved in human rights and peacemaking efforts in theircountries. Women on the frontline of efforts to end violence and secure a just peace seldom recordtheir experiences, activities and insights – as generally there is no time or, perhaps, they do not haveformal education that would help them record their stories. The Women PeaceMakers Program is aselective program for leaders who want to document, share and build upon their uniquepeacemaking stories. Selected peacemakers join the IPJ for an eight-week residency. Women PeaceMakers are paired with a Peace Writer to document in written form their story of living in conflict and building peace in their communities and nations. The peacemakers’ storiesare also documented on film by the IPJ’s partner organization Sun & Moon Vision Productions. While in residence at the institute, Women PeaceMakers give presentations on their work and thesituation in their home countries to the university and San Diego communities. The IPJ believes that women’s stories go beyond headlines to capture the nuance of complexsituations and expose the realities of gender-based violence, thus providing an understanding of conflict and an avenue to its transformation. The narrative stories of Women PeaceMakers not only provide this understanding, but also show the myriad ways women construct peace in the midst of and after violence and war. For the realization of peace with justice, the voices of women – thoseseverely affected by violent conflict and struggling courageously and creatively to build community from the devastation – must be recorded, disseminated and spotlighted.
