This chapter draws attention to the emergent forms of feminist subjectivity among displaced women through a careful investigation of both formal and informal strategies for effecting peace. It specifically reports the organized efforts of women's groups to participate in building a New Sudan. Women making peace are asserting themselves as active citizens. Sudanese women are urging the international community and their country's male leaders to advance the inclusion of women in peace building and reconciliation. Sudanese women's peace activism has been anchored in manifold formal and informal gatherings through which they chart peaceful paths. Through everyday practices and the strategic deployment of the concept of women's rights as human rights, peace feminism is altering the meaning of peace from the mere absence of war to a more inclusive embrace of tolerance and accommodation of difference.
