The project to redefine security from a women's perspective - 'At What Cost?' - seeks to place a spotlight on the tenets of what constitutes 'security' for Canadian women - challenging the male constructs that focus on surveillance and militarism - with emphasis instead on creating societies that support women's needs and building economic and social resilience that supports the physical and mental well-being of all citizens.
The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), has been operating in Canada for more than 100 years. The organization was formed in 1915 as Canadian women joined with others from around the world, in the Hague, to seek an end to the First World War.
The organization was awarded the Nobel Peace
Prize for its efforts, and has continued throughout its long history to work
with the League of Nations and its successor, the United Nations, to promote
full equality in the broadest of terms, to understand and address the roots
of all forms of violence and conflict, including anti-woman violence, and to
promote human rights, protect the environment and abolish war.
WILPF-Canada invites all women in Canada to join the conversation about what is truly important to make them feel secure in their lives and that of their families. They are invited to have their say at WILPF.
