ISDP Forum: Women, Peace & Disarmament
May 27, 2015 - 15:00-16:30
With Petra Tötterman Andorff, Deputy Secretary General of Kvinna till Kvinna and Malin Nilsson, President of the Swedish section of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom
For over a century, women have organized themselves in support of peace and disarmament. However, both in civil society operations as well as more formal peace negotiations a lack of female representation is prevalent. On occasion of the International Women’s Day for Peace and Disarmament, which has been celebrated since the 1980’s, ISDP wishes to invite you to this Forum on “Women, Peace and Disarmament”. Ms. Petra Tötterman Andorff, and Ms. Malin Nilsson, will form the panel, exploring women’s role in disarmament and peacebuilding and the lack of female representation in official negotiations, before opening the discussion for questions from the audience.
