Transcript The World of WILPF Teacher, farmer, construction worker, typist, homemaker, student, grandmother. . . every woman has a place in the worldwide struggle for peace, freedom and justice. WILPF works for: an economy that puts people above profit; universal disarmament and a strong United Nations; civil rights for all, regardless of race, sex or age; full rights for all women; an end to U. S. intervention abroad; an end to government spying; peace education in schools and communities. The United States Section has a national office in Philadelphia, a legislative office in Washington, non-governmental representation at the United Nations, and numerous local branches around the country. FEED THE CITIES, FEED THE SUBURBS, FEED THE FARMS STOP FUELING THE ARMS RACE! On International Women's Day (March 8) 1976, WILPF launched its "Feed the Cities, Not the Pentagon" campaign. While rural, suburban and urban communities suffer from lack of funds for job programs, health care, education and other social needs, the federal government continues to spend vast sums on military overkill. Unemployment is a particular problem for women, blacks and young people. Spending for social needs, which would provide more jobs than spending for military weapons, must be increased. WILPF members and branches around the country have organized community coalitions to lobby Congress and the Administration for cuts in military spending and for more money for jobs, schools, hospitals and other social services. ^vrAGo THE WOMEN'S INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE FOR PEACE AND FREEDOM was founded in 1915, with Jane Addams as its first president. Its purpose is to work by nonviolent means to establish those political, social and psychological conditions which can assure peace, freedom and justice for all.
