Moscow Women Leadership Conference
WFWP Russia recently hosted an international conference in Moscow, around the theme of “The International Cooperation of Women in Terms of Peacemaking Initiatives” (Global Women’s Peace Network).
The conference was attended by a total of 200 WFWP leaders and VIPs, from many regions around the world, including Korea, Japan, the United States, Hong Kong, Austria, Switzerland, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Kazakhstan and Lithuania, as well as from various parts of Russia.
Women's Federation for World Peace (WFWP) is a non-governmental organization (NGO) in "General Consultative Status" with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations in association with the UN Department of Public Information. This status was first granted in 1997 in recognition of its aims and numerous humanitarian projects, and WFWP has continuously maintained its status through regular evaluations held every four years.
Women's Federation for World Peace is about empowering women to make the world a more peaceful and harmonious place. WFWP Founder Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, wife of Rev. Sun Myung Moon, has expressed today's age as the time for women to come to the forefront to lead this world towards peace.
Why women, now? This statement is based on the understanding that women and mothers have those innate abilities of compassion and love, so urgently needed in our world today. In the 21st century, women should play a greater role in world history by facilitating and steering the construction of a more peaceful world together with the men, by serving as one of the wheels that drives forward the engine of history. Going beyond the century of power and technology, women will have a central role in building a century of greater compassion, care and love through promoting a culture of peace, where their role will be more important than ever before.
