Feminist Disarmament Project

Feminist Leadership in Disarmament

SCRAP Weapons wants to highlight the achievements of Feminist Leadership in Disarmament,  while looking towards the future and seeing how we can continue to highlight the importance of women in disarmament, with a specific focus on women in the Global South and the work that they have been selflessly doing for decades.

Webinar Series

The webinar series focuses on women and feminist perspectives in disarmament. We are excited to be hosting leading experts from the international disarmament, non-proliferation, and peace-building community.

The webinars intend to provide critical and in-depth insight into the experiences and achievements of female figures working in the field.

Topics that will be explored include women’s role in negotiating and implementing key treaties, the importance of enhancing women and feminist perspectives in global disarmament and peace-building discourses, and advice for those seeking to enter the field.

Our Objectives

The Webinars

To explore these topics in a comprehensive manner, the series will open with a ‘kick-off’ webinar followed by six focused thematic webinars. These are accompanied by blog posts introducing topics and an awareness campaign on social media.
