Women in Black…
…is a world-wide network of women committed to peace with justice and actively opposed to injustice, war, militarism and other forms of violence. As women experiencing these things in different ways in different regions of the world, we support each other’s movements.
An important focus is challenging the militarist policies of our own governments. We are not an organisation, but a means of communicating and a formula for action.
WiB International gathering in South Africa, March 2018
The next Women in Black international gathering will be hosted by WiB South Africa (WIBSA).
5-8 March 2018
The gathering will take place at the Castle of Good Hope. The castle was a military fort established by the first colonizers. It was also a place where anti-colonial leaders were imprisoned. The current managers of the space support civil and activist initiatives that repurpose the original use of the castle. The venue is in the Cape Town city centre, near to parliament where we will hold our International Women’s Day vigil.
Please let WIBSA know how many women will be attending from your vigil.
WiBs will need to pay for their own air tickets, accommodation and transport in Cape Town
