The escalating situation in Gaza has reached a critical point; immediate and continued attention and actions are required. WILPF is spearheading a Week of Action Against Genocide in Gaza from November 9th to 15th to remind the world that Palestine is a feminist issue, demand an immediate ceasefire and call for a two-way arms embargo on the State of Israel.
We stand for intersectional feminism, freedom, human rights and justice for all. Feminist solidarity is our call and our tool to disrupt all forms of violence around the world. But a month has passed since October 7th and the attacks on Gaza continue … so now more than ever we must centre Palestine in our efforts to forge a path to peace built on nonviolence, equal rights and justice.
See this detailed guide on WILPF’s action plan, key dates, and how you can connect and contribute.
You will find letter templates to call for a ceasefire and arms embargo to send to your government officials, important tools and resources to challenge the narrative, ideas and templates for slogans to use in marches, and much more.
Bullying is any abusive practice or behaviour directed by an individual or group of individuals towards another individual or group. Bullying can be considered a form of harassment that is more frequent and systematic. It aims not only to violate the receiving party, but also to belittle them. Bullying is characterised by being targeted at a person or group of people, while harassment need not be targeted.
Harassment/Taharrush is a group of unwanted abusive practices that are threatening to the recipient by their very nature. Unlike bullying, harassment need not be targeted. It may take place directly or indirectly, so that it creates an atmosphere of distress, heaviness, and insecurity.
Assault is any actual or attempted aggressive act that deliberately violates or threatens the physical space of an individual or group. It is often believed that assault is limited to direct physical violations only, but as a concept it also includes indirect infringement on personal space.
Exploitation occurs when a person or group of people uses their power, status, or positionality for personal benefit through the use of force, duress, violence, coercion, deceit, or trickery that causes direct or indirect harm to another person or group of people, or to public interest.
