History of WILPF Nigeria
WILPF Nigeria was created by Joy Ada Onyesoh (currently, the President) and launched in April 2009. They officially became a Section in August 2011 at the congress in Costa Rica.
The new Nigeria Section saw a strategic opportunity and platform to host the issues of women, peace and security so that they could be heard on a national and international level.
WILPF Nigeria was initiated to in response to a country faced with multidimensional problems, related to the discrimination of women and the challenges of women to participate in security issues.
WILPF Nigeria provided a platform to address these challenges through peaceful and nonviolent means and for women to engage actively, to build the capacity of women at grassroots and national level and be part of a network of diverse women who are passionately seeking peace through non-violent means worldwide.
WILPF-Nigeria has established focal points in three parts of the country: in the South West, Anne Baldwin Anyasodo, in the South East, Olivia Oseji and in the North, Ginika Pascal Ndubuisi. The National coordinator for the focal points is Anne Baldwin Anyasodo. WILPF-Nigeria has been part of advocacy both nationally and internationally to end violence against women.
