This webinar is hosted by the WILPF International Office in Geneva.
Women were active agents of change and mobilisation in the uprisings that swept across Libya and
Yemen. However, as the uprisings metastasised into militarised crises, women in these countries are
facing similar and ever-growing levels of insecurity and violence, and share the same disappointment in
the rapidly shifting global political landscape that permitted destructive economy of wars to prevail over
sustainable peace and the rule of law.
WILPF, in close partnership with its partners in Libya and Yemen, is conducting an analytical study based
on local consultations with women leaders, activists, and IDPs. The study aims at reflecting on women’s
perspectives on what life is like under a doctrine of “endless war”
Join this webinar to hear the Libyan and Yemeni women experts share the multidimensional insecurity
concerns in both countries, and analyse the preliminary findings of the study! (Webinar is in English)
