Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

WILPF’s mission is to end and prevent war, ensure that women are represented at all levels in the peace-building process, defend the human rights of women, and promote social, economic and political justice.

To achieve this mission, WILPF conducts programmes in three areas: Disarmament, Human Rights, and Women, Peace and Security. The 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, men, and people of all gender identities are equally empowered and involved in positions of leadership at the local, national and international levels.
