History of WILPF España
Some of the founders of WILPF España were a part of the antinuclear feminist pacifist movement of the 1980s. Others were involved in the Women In Black anti-war movement during the 1990s.
In the last decade they have been focussed on education and research, editing and writing journals and newspapers, giving lectures and organising workshops on women, peace and security.
Recognising WILPF’s historical contributions as the oldest organisation in this field, the women applied for membership and were admitted to the Congress held in San José, Costa Rica, in August 2011.
WILPF España Today
Presently, there are 36 women involved in WILPF España, with others in the process of being admitted.
