Who we are
Our Vision of a Feminist Peace
More than 100 years have passed since the birth of our League in 1915, and still the world is haunted by the spectre of war. We see patriarchy, militarism, and neoliberalism as three inter-related causes that push us all towards more conflict. It does not have to be this way. The antidote is feminism. At its core, feminism includes the beliefs that women matter, that equality matters, and that gender is a construct: the product of unequal power structures. When those structures have been changed and patriarchy ended, then we can have real equality and the possibility of sustainable peace: a feminist peace. Our methods of work include analysis, awareness-raising, advocacy, activism, and building alliances. We build coalitions and partnerships, share knowledge, and convene women from all around the world. We create bridges and spaces for discussion so that women can play their rightful role in decision-making and help shape the responses that affect their lives and communities. We also support the work of the wider WILPF community through training and resource-sharing. Where necessary, we organise campaigns and nonviolent actions to promote the cause of peace.
Legalised on 18 February 2015, the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF Cameroon) has a vision of a world free of violence and armed conflict where human rights are protected, through processes that involve women at all levels. WILPF's mission in Cameroon and Africa is to contribute to the stability of social peace by building a movement of women peacemakers to prevent war and ensure that women are represented at all levels in the peacebuilding process, to defend women's rights, and to promote social, economic and political justice. Working for peace at national, regional and global levels is therefore a constant concern of WILPF, which justifies our involvement, at all levels, in the fight against the development and proliferation of weapons of all kinds. The organisation's flagship programmes are Women, Peace and Security (UNSC Resolution 1325) Disarmament Human Rights Crisis Response.
