CSW61 Heram Taiwan Parallel Event

WFWPI Young Adult Delivers Powerful Address at CSW61 Event                                                                                    Before I started my studies in university, I did a three-year training leadership program in Europe, called STF-Europe. During that time I was selected to become a team leader and even a group leader. This helped me to have many experiences with young people, teenagers and especially young girls.

Horizon Summit 2017

Global Women's Gathering on Leadership and Networking

In conjunction with CSW61, WFWPI and WFWP, USA organized the Horizon Summit, a global women's gathering on leadership and networking, with three separate events over a period of four days from March 16 to 19.  The younger generation of participants ended the program with a discussion on the takeaways from the day and their own role in advocacy. The general consensus among the group was that they felt a deep need to become experts in their various fields in order to influence policies and bring about the change they wish to see.

Young Adult Participation at the 66th Un DPI/NGO Conference

In his address at the opening ceremony, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon remarked, "Youth must assume greater responsibility in creating a better world for all."

For the WFWPI young adults, one of the most notable moments of the conference was the realization that WFWPI is more than just another NGO; it has a unique and powerful voice with insight that is essential to establishing a peaceful world. While much of the world can be seen struggling to bridge the generation gap and resolve differences, WFWPI functions on a level of respect, reconciliation and partnership, across generations and for the betterment of all. As global citizens, the embodiment of these qualities and values is crucial in advancing toward a peaceful future.

Men Fighting for Women's Rights

WFWPI Internship Program - Geneva

The women's movement has taught much to men and changed them for the better to be more encouraging towards women or to have a greater role in raising children. We are so used to various privileges - such as automatically being taken more seriously - that we are not even aware they exist. That's why it is so crucial that men listen to the experiences of women and the organizations that represent them such as the WFWPI, and learn. In the end, men will only stop oppressing women if they change, which means tackling attitudes within their ranks that make possible the objectification of women or which normalize violence against women. This is one of the key arguments made by UN Women Goodwill Ambassadors such as Emma Watson, who actively campaigns to encourage men to support women. Unless men speak out, such attitudes will persist and the oppression against women will continue. That's why I am a proud intern of Women's Federation for World Peace International.
