Women Wage Peace

Women Wage Peace works to bring about a viable peace agreement. We will place the option of a political resolution at the top of the public agenda, as it is the only outcome that offers life and hope. A new and different reality in the Middle East is feasible, and we must strive for it.

About the movement

Peace is not an utopia ; It is the necessary foundation for the lives of the two peoples in this place, in security and freedom.

In The Movement

Our movement works throughout the country to raise awareness and engage the public in a discussion about the feasibility of a political resolution. It creates opportunities for dialogue with individuals and groups through formal and informal meetings within the community. The movement also organizes national events, such as demonstrations and protests, in order to pressure decision makers to work toward reaching a viable peace agreement.

    Women Wage Peace in solidarity with the victims of the slaughter in Aleppo:
    We turn to the international community to act immediately in order to put an end to the war in Syria and to provide aid to Syrian citizens and refugees.
    During wartime, women and children pay the highest price. We demand that women be included in decision making and peace making processes. We demand the implementation of UN resolution 1325.
    Peace is Possible!

    Women Wage Peace wish everyone a Happy New Year – a year of hope, light and peace.
    ========================================================================
    Just look at all the hope we kindled this past week:
    The Chanukah events began last Saturday in Ramla with an inter-faith ceremony.
    ————————————————————————————————————————–
    On Monday we celebrated Chanukah and Christmas in Fassuta.
    ———————————————————————————————————————–
    On Tuesday we had our “Israeli Salad” with women from Ofakim and
    neighboring kibbutzim at Kibbutz Negba.
    ————————————————————————————————————————-
    On Wednesday we had a tour of the area near the Gaza border
    and learned about life under the shadow of war, and about the importance
    of community resilience and solidarity .
    On the same day we lit candles at the Jewish-Arab Peace Center at Givat Haviva;
    women from Misgav and from Sachnin met to make squares for the Peace Quilt,
    and they too kindled the hope.
    ————————————————————————————————————————-
    The young women of WWP held the first ever Poetry Slam to a full house!
    ————————————————————————————————————————-
    On Thursday we participated in an exciting inter-faith program organized
    by Kehilat Zion in Jerusalem where we lit candles of peace and unity.
    ————————————————————————————————————————-
    On Friday members of WWP went to Tekoa where , together with the women of Tekoa,
    we made squares for the Peace Quilt and spoke about peace making and heroic women.
    —————————————————————————————————————————–
    On Saturday, the last day of Chanukah, we held a special event in Jaffa
    with hundreds of women who came, despite the cold, rainy weather;
    8 heroic women lit the Chanukah candles.
    “Every one is a small light , but together we are a powerful light!”
    —————————————————————————————————————————–
    We continue together, women from the right, center and left, Jews and Arabs,
    from all over the country – with determination, responsibility
    and tremendous hope, and we will not stop until there is a political agreement
    ==================================================================
    We are concerned about the ramifications of the UN decision on security,
    on Israel’s position in the world and on the peace process.
    The vote at the UN shows that when Israel does not present a clear initiative or
    policy regarding a solution to the conflict, the vacuum that is created invites international dictates.
    A political agreement with the Palestinians is in Israel’s interests.
    We call on our government to take steps to promote a solution
    because it is not possible to continuing living in a state of struggle,
    aggression and pain. We all deserve a better future.
