Women Wage Peace is a grassroots movement, founded in the aftermath of the 2014 Gaza War. We number thousands of members from the right, center and left of the political spectrum, Jews and Arabs, secular and religious, united in the demand for a mutually binding agreement between Israelis and Palestinians. We believe, in the spirit of UN Resolution 1325, that only if women are involved as full partners in decision making, will there be sustainable peace and security for all.
In 2020, despite the challenges of Covid-19, we achieved the following:
✓ Women Wage Peace was granted NGO advisory status at the UN.
✓ We introduced our bill Political Alternatives First into the Knesset.
✓ We grew to over 45,000 members strong.
✓ We are ready to launch four ambitious new projects for 2021.
With the Abraham Accords and the Biden administration in place, along with signals from the Palestinian Authority of their wish to return to negotiations, there is an unprecedented window of opportunity for policy makers to commit to a political solution and for us to amplify our message that to achieve sustainable peace women must be at the table.
We are seizing this moment to expand our base of support in Israel and abroad, through this 48-hour intensive crowdfunding campaign, beginning February 14th. We invite you to join us!
Your robust support will make possible these and other bold initiatives:
Regional Summit – Our flagship project for Israeli and Palestinian women will culminate in a regional peace conference with participation of leaders and policymakers from the region and the world.
Gaza Border Project – We will establish a Citizens’ Cabinet to advocate for the Israeli residents along the Gaza border and keep a spotlight on the ever-present danger of full-scale war in this region.
Removing Barriers to Peace – We will challenge the belief of many Israelis that there is no Palestinian partner for peace. Using cutting edge communications research, we will reframe public perception of the possibilities for peace.
Hands for Peace – To strengthen efforts to reframe public perception of the possibilities for peace, we will invite artists to create sculptures that embody their aspirations for peace, to be installed in sites throughout the country.
Ongoing Projects - promoting our Knesset bill, Political Alternatives First, and advocating for the implementation of a national action plan assuring participation of women in all matters of peace and security.
We expect that our crowdfunding campaign will significantly expand support for our work. Join us in making a political agreement possible.
