Do you wish you could be part of a group which works for peace, freedom, justice and human rights? Which works to educate others to understand why violence and war don't work? Interested? Then please join us.

One person alone can make a contribution but by working together women can and do achieve much more.
WILPF is here for all persons who want to work together to fulfill our aims.
