Next week, women peacebuilders and human rights defenders from around the world will come to New York for the 29th October Security Council WPS debate to continue to mobilise and organise for action. WILPF activists will join from Colombia, Syria, Lebanon, and the Korean Peninsula. Women will be looking to the Security Council to prevent roll-back of gains, and accelerate holistic action for accountability by taking bold action for peace based on women’s leadership and rights.
WILPF will support a number of discussions focused on accelerating accountability on specific country situations. We will also hold a internal WILPF dialogues aimed at connecting, cross-learning, and strategising on how to strengthen our collective work for feminist peace around key upcoming opportunities at local, national and international levels.
