The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) is the oldest international women's peace organisation, founded in 1915. It has members in advance of forty countries in all continents.
WILPF campaigns against militarism and war and to establish world peace based on economic justice, human rights and cooperation in a sustainable environment. WILPF works in networks of women's organisations and others working for peace and global economic justice, bringing a gender perspective to this work.
At national level and individually, WILPF women lobby government writing letters, visiting MPs, organising postcard and petition campaigns, taking part in vigils, taking stalls at public events, joining in demonstrations.
