This Opinion Piece takes a close look at women’s contributions to and roles in Myanmar’s current peace processes. The two authors identify in particular the difficulties women have had to overcome and often still face, to have their voices heard, and they also review the variety of ways in which women have continuously contributed to the country’s peace processes. They highlight particular ways in which women’s contributions could help optimise new political dynamics such as interest in inclusion and representation, as well as helping to make the implementation of the Government’s ‘peace road map’ launched in 2011 more inclusive and aimed at just, sustainable peace in the country.
