Invest in Peace International Campaigns

PeaceWomen is a WILPF international project based in WILPF's United Nations (UN) office in New York.

The PeaceWomen project promotes the role of women in preventing conflict, and the equal and full participation of women in all efforts to create and maintain international peace and security.

PeaceWomen facilitates monitoring of the UN system, information sharing and the enabling of meaningful dialogue for positive impact on women’s lives in conflict and post-conflict environments.

PeaceWomen advances WILPF’s aims by monitoring and advocating for the rapid and full implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolutions on women, peace and security: UNSCR 1325 [link] (2000) and the subsequent UNSCR 1820 (2008); UNSCR 1888 (2009); UNSCR 1889 (2009); and UNSCR 1960 (2010).

PeaceWomen focuses on six core areas of action:

  • monitoring the UN Security Council’s implementation of SCR1325
  • providing a comprehensive online information source on women, peace and security
  • monitoring the UN system’s implementation of SCR1325
  • advocating for the rapid and full implementation of SCR 1325 and related resolutions
  • managing the translation initiative
  • general outreach related to women, peace and security
