Femmes artisanes de paix: Des profils à découvrir is the result of a Centre for Women and Christian Traditions' research project (2009–2012). More than ten researchers contributed original papers focusing on the role of women in grassroots peacemaking, including but not limited to the spiritual implications of such roles. Groups or individual women represented are Mama Boboto and Cécilia Biye, the Bahai'ie community, CODEPINK, Jeanne Devos, Catherine Garrett, the Chilean women, Eva Sanderson, Sisters in Spirit, Sophie Scholl, and Clara Zetkin. This research was presented at a conference held at Saint Paul University on November 25-26, 2011, and was published in 2013.
