Listen to Women for a Change

15 years after the Beijing World Conference on Women and the WILPF Women’s Peace Train, this exciting new book, brings together international politicians, activists and scientists to take stock. What happened to the decisions made a Beijing? Why is poverty still a gender issue? Why today is more money than ever spent on the military while we are short of money to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and finance gender justice.

Edited by WILPF member and German Green MEP, Barbara Lochbihler, this book brings together authors from Russia, India, Australia, South Africa, Hungary, the UK, Germany and Sweden to discuss where we are now, and where we go next.
