"It feels like the start of something very important, very moving. I'm old enough so I actually remember the war and the division and I hope that we can contribute in a positive way for more contact. I have a great faith in people talking to each other."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Price laureate and Honorary Co-Chair of 2015 Women's Walk for Peace in Korea:
"Well North Korea is a divided country and it's the longest cold war that we have in the world today and it's a highly militarised situation. World war could break out so we need to work for peace to come and support those in North and South Korea who are working for reunification of the families and for a peace treaty and for a peaceful solution to the Korean situation."
A group of female peace activists arrived in North Korea's capital on Tuesday for a march across the Demilitarised Zone that they hope will bring world attention to calls for a resolution to tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
The rare crossing of the DMZ, approved by both Koreas, is to take place on Sunday.
The border along the DMZ is one of the most heavily fortified in the world and it is highly unusual for crossings to be allowed.
The event has raised controversy, with critics accusing the group of being propaganda pawns for the totalitarian North Korean government.
But participants say the march is intended to be a symbolic step toward ending the tensions between the Koreas, not an endorsement of either side's policies.
Eighty-one-year-old Gloria Steinem, an iconic figure in the equal rights movement in the United States is one of the participants in the march.
Also on the trip are Nobel Peace Prize laureates Mairead Maguire and Leymah Gbowee.
