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

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 March 18 virtual session, 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.

Commemoration and Commitment: Documenting June 12, 1982 as a Festival for Life

“In Our Hands,” a film by Robert Richter, documents both the joy and the awareness that characterized the June 12, 1982 March for nuclear abolition; joy engendered by the massive positive energy the marchers exuded, and awareness of the stark realities as articulated by so many who were interviewed by the filmmaker. The film is presented here to support peacelearning and reflection in support of action for the future of the nuclear abolition movement.
