Women Peacemakers Program are affiliated to WRI, and we're delighted that they have decided to hold their global consultation on Gender and Militarism just prior to the Small Actions, Big Movements conference (July 2-4, 2014). The events will feed into each other, also making sure that an understanding of gender and militarism is key to our explorations of the continuum of violence.
