    WILPF Aotearoa is part of the international women’s peace organisation established in 1915 to 'bring together women of different political beliefs and philosophies who are united in their determination to study, make known and help abolish the causes and the legitimisation of war'.

    There are WILPF groups in 42 countries, all working towards the same goals:

    • an end to war, violence and coercion;
    • peaceful negotiated solutions to conflicts;
    • universal disarmament and the diversion of resources away from armed forces and weapons to meeting human needs;
    • the elimination of all forms of inequality, oppression, discrimination and exploitation;
    • the establishment of an international economic order based on meeting the needs of people, not on privilege and profit;
    • environmentally and socially sustainable development;
    • reform and strengthening of the United Nations to assist with achieving the above goals.

    International WILPF has consultative status at the UN, and this ensures women’s voices for peace are heard at that level.

    In Aotearoa New Zealand, we are committed to honouring the Treaty of Waitangi as a positive way to prevent conflict and to remedy past and present injustice.
