International Women’s Day
“Striving for Peace, Preparing for War”
Friday, March 8th, 10am PT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET

Around the globe, women have spent decades protesting, advocating, and leading local and global nuclear disarmament movements and peace initiatives in countless ways.

The current geopolitical context and the growing number of nuclear-related and nuclear-adjacent conflicts feel both unprecedented and all too familiar. The calamitous situation in the Gaza Strip, the risk of a wider war in the Middle East, the threat of a nuclearized Iran, and the global rise of authoritarianism are forcing the need for a widespread reckoning and reorientation of domestic and foreign policies. Yet our leaders consistently fail to provide genuine security or productive diplomacy, using the same old compass that has only one direction – with the needle invariably pointing towards war.

This International Women’s Day, Equity Rises again turns our full attention towards women who are challenging the prevailing views on the necessity of threats, force, and war to resolve conflicts:

  • Sara Haghdoosti, Executive Director of Win Without War and Win Without War Education Fund
  • Dr. Nancy Okail, President and CEO of the Center for International Policy
  • Dr. Emma Belcher, President of Ploughshares Fund

The webinar is scheduled for March 8th at 10am PT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET.

Please join us for what is sure to be an inspiring and engaging conversation. And please share this invitation with a friend.
