Women’s Peace Gathering in Los Angeles Bares All for Peace

On Sunday, March 2nd, 2003 a group of 55 women gathered in solidarity for women affected by war, on a mountain-top above Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles to illuminate love for peace by spelling out “PEACE” with their naked bodies. The event included the presence of noted activists, musicians, and community leaders. A silent walk in remembrance of the victims of war led to a meadow where women called for healing the human spirit through readings, music, and ritual.

"The Women's Sacred Peace Walk and Ritual" was created in conjunction with Baring Witness, a worldwide pro-peace movement founded by Donna Sheehan (www.baringwitness.org).

Aloma Ichinose, who recently photographed the International Women's Peace Conference in Geneva, captured the event.
