Feminist movement building is foundational for gender justice and feminist peace. However, an intersectional approach that addresses gendered power across race, class, economic status, sexual orientation and gender identity, age, and other status, is critical for transformative change. This event explores how civil society can address gaps in intersectional women’s organizing by creating spaces for women’s meaningful participation. It will share experiences of the WILPF US training and mentorship program at the CSW with diverse students as a method of building inclusive and diverse young leadership for action that shifts from militarized visions of security towards human security and gender justice.
