Civilians most affected by the conflict in Uganda are the grandmothers, mothers and sisters of those still with the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). Women have a critical role to play in trying to bring peace to their communities.

CARE recently conducted a survey on the peace talks among 75 women in six IDP camps in Gulu district. The survey shows that women are powerful voices for peace, but they are not being heard.
