In partnership with the MenEngage Alliance, and WILPF National Sections in Afghanistan, Cameroon, Colombia, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), WILPF has launched an initiative to confront militarised masculinities and mobilise men for feminist peace initially in four countries in 2020 and then expanding in subsequent years.
This project has several main areas of focus, including:
Alliance-building between women peacebuilders and men who work for gender equality;
Global and national research to better understand the root causes and manifestations of militarised masculinities;
Advocacy at the national, local, and global levels, informed by new findings and insights.
The WPS programme is actively involved in shaping and implementing this project with colleagues and activists in the four sections and with our MenEngage allies. To read more about the project, visit the WILPF website!
