To celebrate WILPF's 98th anniversary this year, WILPF-Nepal conducted a capacity-building workshop on June 15th on women's human rights advocacy. Applying the WILPF integrated approach on peace and security to issues of concern for WILPF-Nepal, the section organized a workshop that included women's political leaders, rights activists, journalists, and local WILPF members.
In this program, section participants shared and celebrated WILPF's founding ideas of peace and freedom. WILPF-Nepal also published and distributed their section magazine, Women's Voice, along with other reading materials that encouraged participants to learn more about national and international women's rights and explore causes of war and ways to build peace. In doing so, they clearly illustrated WILPF's unique ability to connect global policy advocacy with local action on women's human rights, disarmament, and the women, peace and security agenda. With a high tea included as part of the celebration, participants left refreshed and motivated to take action to strengthen women's human rights and promote security for all.
