WFWP Chapters adhere to the principle that women, working together, taking initiative and empowering one another across traditional lines of age, race, culture and religion to create healthy families, are resolving the complex problems of our world. Ultimately solutions come as true partnerships between men and women are established in all levels of society. The beginning point is within societys most elemental level - the family. From there, Peace will naturally expand.
