Women Wage Peace is a rapidly growing grassroots Israeli movement of over 25,000 women (and men!) united across all traditional dividing lines – political, religious, ethnic, social and geographic. It was founded three years ago in the midst of deep despair and cynicism in the aftermath of Operation Protective Edge/the 2014 Gaza War in order to reclaim hope and take action for a viable future for their region. The goal is to reach an honorable and bilaterally acceptable political agreement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to increase the number of women in all aspects of negotiations.
Our Journey to Peace will bring together tens of thousands of secular and religious, young and old, Jewish and Arab women from the political right, center, and left for a two-week journey across Israel. At its culmination, decision-makers in Jerusalem will hear our unstoppable demand for a diplomatic resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
