Peace x Peace
After watching American bombs strike Afghanistan in 2001, Patricia Smith Melton (second left), a Virginia playwright, invited a number of influential women to discuss a route to peace. In January 2002, after a three-day roundtable, Melton had a 600-page transcript of their thoughts on equal rights, education, inclusion, and restorative justice.
Melton launched Peace x Peace, an organization and Web site dedicated to connecting circles of women.
