WHO WE ARE:
Around us, the world is in crisis. Human and planetary security is threatened. Increasing conflicts, rising nationalism, the climate crisis, and threats to women’s rights endure. Systems of exclusions and inequalities have resulted in greater divisions between people and nations. Feminist peacemakers and human rights defenders around the world are rising to the challenges of war, mass displacement and migration, climate change, and threats to gains made in women’s rights over the past decades. There is an urgent need to do more, to be united, and to work in new ways to achieve gender equality, stop violent conflicts, and improve the lives of women and their communities across the globe. Given the scale and scope of the challenges, bold, dynamic and collective approaches are required.
