The Women, Peace and Security Programme (PeaceWomen) is a programme of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), the oldest women’s peace organisation, founded in 1915.
It promotes feminist peace by strengthening women’s meaningful participation, transforming gendered power, and bridging local gender conflict analysis with global efforts to implement a holistic WPS Agenda. This builds on WILPF’s overall priorities of addressing root causes of violence with a feminist lens and mobilising for non-violent action.
Our portfolio of tools and projects range from policy advocacy at the United Nations to monitoring to outreach to local capacity building.
