Abstract: Violence and conflicts occur constantly in communities and universities. We have also witnessed the war that has been raging in Afghanistan for 40 years now, which has severely affected the entire society, particularly women. This library research explores how women/girls can foster a culture of peace in the universities and community and reduce violence against people, particularly women. Existing scholarship and research findings in this area have indicated that conducting peace-related training programs for women in universities and involving women in policymaking, planning, politics, and leadership can be effective in promoting the culture of peace. Since woman is a mother, she can lay the foundation for the culture of peace by educating a peaceful child. A woman is a sister, daughter, and wife and most Afghans honor women; therefore, she can promote the culture of peace in the family and community. If women/girls are given a role in leadership and politics, they can promote the culture of peace effectively because they are more compassionate and merciful than men. For women to play a positive role in promoting the culture of peace in universities and community-based on previous research findings and recommendations, I suggest conducting training programs on peace and conflict recognition and conflict resolution skills in Afghan universities as well as involving women/girls in policymaking, planning, politics, and leadership to create the culture of peace.
