Women Enacting Human Security in the Midst of War: A CSW Parallel Event in Honor of Dr. Betty Reardon

March 18 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am EDT

As wars escalate across the world, poverty increases and climate deteriorates. In this environment, militarization and corporate greed destroy the world. This virtual discussion will bring women activists and scholars from several countries to voice the invaluable often unpaid work to achieve human security under patriarchal situations. For this special CSW virtual parallel event,  we spotlight the work of grassroots women who have formulated the global Women, Peace and Security agenda to highlight their ongoing peace work to support those on the ground.

Event co-organized by:

Sansristi, the International Institute on Peace Education (IIPE), the Global Campaign for Peace Education (GCPE), and the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP)
