You're reading: John Kerry: Women play a central role in peace

These past months in Ukraine have proved the power of that vision. 

I
was profoundly moved to visit Ukraine this week and to see the courage of the
Ukrainian people with my own eyes. I’ll never forget walking down Institutska
Street and talking with one woman about her aspirations for a better life. It
gave me a deep, personal sense of how closely linked the people of Ukraine are
not just to Americans, but to people the world over. 

I’m
awed by the thousands of strong women who have braved sniper fire from rooftops
to resolve their country’s political crisis and make their voices heard.  Ukrainian women have risked their careers,
fortunes, and personal safety to defend their nation’s right to be independent,
democratic and prosperous.
