The centenary of women’s protest against war

In 1914, within an hour of the delivery of the Kingsway Hall resolutions to Downing Street, Britain’s ultimatum to Germany expired and the countries were at war. WILPF UK re-enacted the rally on 4 August 2014 and then delivered a letter to 10 Downing Street requesting meetings with ministers to discuss peaceful solutions to the world’s conflicts. We call on the Government to include women in every aspect of conflict resolution, negotiation and peace-building.
