Who are Women For Peace?

We are women dedicated to the cause of international disarmament.

We oppose our government's enormous military expenditures and urge that our country's wealth be devoted, instead, to meeting needs such as education, housing, health care, and protection of the environment.

We first came together in 1961 to demand the banning of above-ground nuclear tests. Those tests were causing radioactive fallout, exposing many thousands of people, especially children, to higher risks of cancer.

Our nationwide actions helped lead to the Partial Test Ban Treaty, which ended atmospheric nuclear tests.

Today we continue to lobby, educate, and join others all over the world in the struggle to achieve the complete abolition of nuclear weapons.

We work for a change in national priorities and for achievement and preservation of PEACE, JUSTICE, AND HUMAN RIGHTS FOR ALL.

 

The Making Of An Activist

Each gun that is made,
every warship launched,
every rocket fired
signifies, in the final
sense, a theft from
those who hunger and
are not fed and
those who are cold
and are not clothed.

-- Dwight D. Eisenhower
