The former President of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga, today while speaking at the Global Summit of Women in Parliaments held in Jordan, said that peace cannot be achieved and sustained if women are not part of the decision-making processes. Jahjaga invited the participants in the summit to learn from the courage of the women of Kosovo and their commitment to society, to assess their sacrifices and to recognize the power they have as agents of peace, development and progress. “I see history repeat itself when we are witnessing horrific scenes of chained women, girls, and children who are sexually abused and sold as sex slaves in the most heinous way every day by ISIS militants. We have abolished slavery, but our girls are still enslaved today,” she said.
