In 2015, The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom will be celebrating our 100th Anniversary!
In light of this monumental event, WILPF gave name to the movement it has been advocating for the past 100 years, Women’s Power to Stop War.
By joining the movement, you will be part of an international community of courageous activists, who believe conflicts and wars cannot be stopped without the participation of women – and that it is time that women focus on and use their power to stop war.
Together, we will connect, strengthen and celebrate the work of women peacemakers all over the world, culminating in our major events in April 2015, our Centennial Congress and the International Conference on Peacebuilding of the century, where we will forge a new peace agenda for the 21st century.
-You still have a bit of time to register your booth for the Marketplace. Make sure you get your spot to exhibit your work and book a booth today.

NO DEVELOPMENT WITHOUT PEACE: NO PEACE WITHOUT WOMEN
by Sylvie Ndongmo, WILPF Cameroon
I believe that peace is a way of life and that we should portray the change that we want to see in this world. I strongly believe in hard work and commitment in what I do. These are tools that must be used to impact change around us.
STORIES BY MARY-ALYS; HIROSHIMA DAY
by Mary Alys, WILPF UK
We had meetings to discuss whatever our next action might be. For example, we did one for Hiroshima day, a few years running.
Join us in The Hague in April 2015 for the Conference of the century for women peacemakers. This will be the place for activists, students, peacemakers, feminists, academics, human rights defenders and all WILPFers to come together and set the new peace agenda of the 21st century. So make sure we’ll see you in The Hague!
In the meantime, there is plenty for you to engage with if you want to show your support for Women’s Power to Stop War.
