Vision and Mission


WILPF’s mission is to further by non-violent means the social transformation that enables the inauguration of systems under which social and political equality and economic justice for all can be attained to ensure real and lasting peace and true freedom.

To achieve this mission, WILPF conducts programmes in four areas: Disarmament, Human Rights, Crisis Response, and Women, Peace and Security. The WILPF International Secretariat works alongside our global network of Sections, conducting peace-building activities at every level, from the grassroots to the highest decision-making bodies at the United Nations.


WILPF envisions a world free from violence and armed conflict in which human rights are protected and women and men are equally empowered and involved in positions of leadership at the local, national and international levels.


In the effort to create a global community with justice and equality for all, we have published our theory of change infographic to act as a roadmap for those committed to peace. The diagram illustrates how when we monitor our actions and address root causes of violence with a feminist lens, we can achieve feminist peace. Please print, mail and share our Theory of Change to foster a community of non-violence and equality.
