WILPF is happy to announce that we have been selected as a Catalytic Member of the new Compact on Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action. This Compact is part of the Generation Equality Forum, which is a multi-stakeholder, global gathering for gender equality and women’s rights, convened by UN Women and co-hosted by the Governments of Mexico and France, in partnership with civil society. The Compact is aimed at fostering implementation of existing commitments on women, peace and security and humanitarian action.
WILPF hopes that this opportunity will help advance genuine progress on the women, peace and security agenda in the coming years. Several of our priorities for the Compact will include supporting the work of women peacebuilders and peace activists; demilitarization, and disarmament.
