Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon


WFWP Founder

Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, the Founder of the Women's Federation for World Peace International, has dedicated her life to the quest for peace. Along with her husband, the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, she has worked with heads of state, Nobel prize winners, religious leaders, and men and women of the arts to create a world of God's ideal. This pursuit has taken her to the halls of power. In July of 1993, she was the first Korean woman to address a meeting of United States Senators and Congressmen on Capitol Hill. Two months later, on September 7, Mrs. Moon became the first Korean woman to give an address in the United Nations. Her message on both these occasions connected women's responsibility in the quest for world peace with the deepest elements of human existence: the heart of God, the suffering of humanity, and the meaning of human history. As a mother of 14, she is a woman of intense devotion to God, to the world, and to her husband and family - a woman of true love.

"History is calling for reconciliation, compassion, love, service and sacrifice. Today's problems cannot be solved by the logic of power... Our present problems can only be solved by the logic of love."
