This publication is a condensed summary of the most essential stories from the WILPF online 2020 report.
This is an annual report produced in a year like no other: a global pandemic, the concept of democratic governance under attack, temperatures rising both literally and metaphorically. These events were predicted and predictable. It was always just a question of when. Facing the struggles of 2020 head-on, WILPF re-grouped, restrategised, and rose to the challenges.
They underline how the fusion of militarism, capitalism, neoliberalism, and social and economic inequality lead inexorably to catastrophe: predicted and predictable. They analysed and explained the systems, structures, and events that brought us to this point. WILPF already know what needs to be at the core of that reimagined world. This report documents the hard work they are doing to get there. Above all, it is a powerful reflection of the enduring determination of the global feminist peace movement to bring urgently-needed change to our challenged world — no matter the obstacles in our way.
