Our movement works throughout the country to raise awareness and engage the public in a discussion about the feasibility of a political resolution. It creates opportunities for dialogue with individuals and groups through formal and informal meetings within the community. The movement also organizes national events, such as demonstrations and protests, in order to pressure decision makers to work toward reaching a viable peace agreement. Here is a selection of events to provide an impression of our work. We invite you to have a look on our website for more information about our past and present events. On a regular basis, Women from Women Wage Peace organize meetings in their private houses to bring together women from different corners of the country and to give space for discussions about independence, family, community, leadership, pain and joy – about life.

The Peace March in October 2016 will gather Israelis from all over the country to march to Jerusalem to demonstrate their aspiration for a live in peace.

To spread our message of hope and the necessity to end the conflict in order to enable us to live a peaceful life in joy, we gathered at Tel Hai, the historic side of the battle in which Trumpeldor proclaimed his famous last words in 1920: ‘It is good to die for one’s country’. We believe, it is good to live for one’s country!
Members of Women Wage Peace in Tel Aviv have started to spread their message by standing in public places for their cause of peace, in the face of the current, unceasing violence of the ‘Knife Intifada’.

In 2015 Women Wage Peace has started to organize Conferences all over Israel, to create dialog between women from different religious and social backgrounds and geographical origins on their joint responsibility as women who live in Israel: the responsibility to do everything to end the conflict and to path the way for a peaceful future for our children.
``Voice that is popular in Israel however not often heard, we try to represent women from all political views rather than the usual peace movement which is very related to the left. Our work is done with right winged women, with settler women. It is not easy to give represent this voice because of the usual assumption that peace coincides with the left.``
