Saturday, August 18: “Feminist Peace Movement in Africa”—pre-Congress Public Forum.

This Forum looked at the historic and current realities of women working for peace across Africa.  It was a space to network, connect, and strengthen links within and across the movements for peace. There were no registration fees attached to this event and all WILPF members were warmly invited to attend.

The Forum was broken up into thematic sessions: Critical Analysis and Feminist Perspective on Root Causes of Violence, Women’s Roles and Impacts in Prevention, Peaceful elections, Leadership and Peace Processes and Synergies between Africa and the Global Movement and Mediation.
