Ms Mubarak is President of Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW), which was established by Presidential decree in February 2000, with the mandate to draw up a national plan for the advancement of women. In September 2002, Ms. Mubarak convened a conference in Sharm El Sheikh (Egypt) that brought together public figures, peace advocates, international non governmental organizations, as well as the United Nations and its specialized organizations, agencies and programmes to reflect on and recommend concrete steps for women to foster peace. The Women for Peace, Dialogue for Action conference led to the launching of the Women for Peace Movement whose aim is to contribute to the development of a culture that fosters tolerance, peace and human security.
