Build the movement
Women are our greatest strength. We are more than half of the world’s population, we are an enormous global constituency. WILPF maintains and builds its community as a safe and inclusive organisation, using it to advance ideas and create momentum for change. Lasting peace requires people to be mobilised.
We build this membership-based movement, by sharing knowledge and articulating agendas for action, securing sustainable funding, expanding our networks, and being responsive to our grassroots.
We mobilise and empower women, including through women-led efforts to prevent more conflict. Building a strong, dynamic, and non-violent feminist movement is vital to address the causes of war.
Our movement is inclusive and diverse. It includes feminist men, environmentalists, academics, economists, national and international NGOs and UN agencies, philanthropists, feminist political parties … the list is long and all play a role in making this movement work. Together we are stronger.
“Women are our greatest strength. We are more than half of the world’s population, we are an enormous global constituency.”
