The Women, Peace and Security Programme (Peace Women) was founded in 2000 to strengthen women’s rights and participation in international peace and security efforts.

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 mobilizing for non-violent action.  

Based in the New York Office of WILPF, Peace Women facilitates monitoring of the United Nations system, with a particular focus on the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, engages in advocacy work to strengthen the implementation across the UN system, and provides effective outreach and capacity building to amplify and support local gendered conflict analysis and expertise.
