What is WILPF?

Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF)

WILPF (the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom) is an international anti-militarist non-governmental organization (NGO) that works for peace, women's rights and disarmament. In the UK, WILPF is mainly run on a voluntary basis by members in their own homes. Members work through branches, as individuals and in co-operation with other organisations to further WILPF's vision, offering a feminist perspective on discussions and activities. We lobby the government and work to identify the root causes of conflict and to mobilise women to work to prevent war and build peace.
