Join WILPF Tasmania on 4 December for
A Soup and Sandwich Luncheon to celebrate the Centenary of the Tasmanian Branch of WILPF Australia – and also Human Rights Week.
Our Special Guest Speaker will be Professor MARGARET REYNOLDS.
As a young Townsville mother in 1970, Margaret began working for peace via her campaign to establish a branch of the anti-conscription organisation Save our Sons. She joined WILPF in 1983. Margaret has worked for peace in local government council, then as a Senator in the Australian Parliament, the United Nations and the community.
Margaret will outline 50 years of activism in campaigns to find new ways of resolving conflict.
In Tasmania and across the world, the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) brings women together to oppose conflict, violence and global militarisation. An international non-profit, anti-war and peace-building organisation of volunteers, WILPF was founded in 1915 during WW1, and is the longest-surviving women’s anti-war organisation in the world.
In Australia, WILPF branches were established in 1920 in Hobart, Melbourne, Newcastle and Rockhampton. The national WILPF office was also established at this time.
WILPF Tasmania would be delighted to have you join us for this event.
