Feminist Leadership in Disarmament

Webinar 1: ‘Feminist Leadership in Disarmament’

Our opening ‘kick-off’ webinar, “Feminist Leadership in Development”, offers a thorough introduction to women and feminist perspectives in disarmament and peace-building, highlighting critical contributions that leading women figures have made. This webinar will touch on thematic topics that will be further elaborated on in our coming webinars. We have invited panelists to speak about, for example, their experiences in entering and/or working in the field, their role in promoting, negotiating or implementing key treaties or movements, and their insight into the importance of enhancing women and feminist perspectives in global disarmament and peace-building discourses.

We are excited to be hosting leading female figures from the disarmament field each of whom will deliver a presentation. There will also be a chance for the audience to ask questions to the panelists.
