Coming out of the Women's Congress for Future Generations
WILPF changes the world by changing lives. Beginning with our own. We all know this to be true and, as president, I know this to be true at both the micro and macro levels. I am continually humbled by WILPF’s past and inspired by its future.
Dear WILPF US Members and Friends,
The assault on women's rights will never end until there is a legal foundation for women's claims of equality. End the war on women today. Tell the 113th Congress to halt the piecemeal erosion of women's rights by ratifying CEDAW in 2013.
