We are the UK section of The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, an international, feminist NGO.

WILPF links human rights, women’s participation, disarmament, justice and development in all relevant bodies. We also link local, national, regional and international work. This is our integrated approach to peace. Our mission is to end and prevent war; ensure that women are represented at all levels in the peace-building process; defend the human rights of women and men; and promote social, economic and political justice.

The oldest international women’s peace organisation active in the world today, in 1948, WILPF was part of the first group of NGOs to receive consultative status with the UN through the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). We also have consultative status with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

You can also find out more about our International efforts here, and our history here.

We have active branches across the UK, which engage in grassroots activism – you can find out where your closest branch is here.

Over 2018, we are looking to develop working groups, including one on UNSCR 1325. More information is to follow, but if you are interested in getting involved email us at ukwilpf.peace@gmail.com.
