Many countries embarked in conflicts within their national borders, contrary toconflicts between states evidenced prior to post world war two periods. These state conflictsmostly centred on resources and poverty, translates to massive amounts of casualties,majority of them being women and children.[...]It is through women’s active participation and involvement that an effective positive changecan be enhanced especially on issues of Peace, which is the basis for any developmentalactivity. Pertaining peace matters, women contribute to Peace building in many ways althoughtheir contribution has been overlooked in the past due to the fact that it takes unconventionalforms (cp: Strictland/ Duvuury 2003:).

They constitute a large part of the society and thereforetime has come for their role no longer to be under-estimated. This paper is based on ananalysis of the contributions made by women as Peace builders in recent decades, especiallyafter the year 2000 when the Security Council Resolution 1325 was implemented.

The exactfactor that has caused the remarkable positive change since the beginning of women’sinvolvement will be analysed. This paper argues that women can bring back remarkableresults in Peace building efforts if given the opportunity because in most cases they are themost affected victims during and after violent conflicts. It should be noted however that menhave not been entirely secluded, but rather it tries to show how important the role of womencan be when they are involved in peace building.

Therefore the question that will try to be answered is: Does training and empowerment make women better peace builders? Ananalytical method will be utilised in which Non-Governmental Organisations reports andprojects will be used especially on West African countries like Liberia which is the case studyof this paper.

The research will include random reports with a brief case study of Liberiaalthough towards the end of this paper, some comparisons will be done. An example of asuccessful project will be looked at and the factors that has prompted its success.[..]
