Established in 1960, Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW) is a non-partisan Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) comprised of a network of diverse women with consultative status at the United Nations ECOSOC. For over 50 years, VOW has provided a means for women to exercise responsibility for the promotion of world peace and justice, through education of themselves and others to take an equal part in the democratic process of decision making; and to cooperate with women throughout the world to create the mutual respect and understanding necessary for the peaceful resolution of international conflict. Current projects include leadership programs for young women, and work on UN SC Resolution 1325.
VOW is a member of the Climate Action Network and sponsors work on this concern as well as on nuclear weapons abolition. VOW is a member of the Canadian Peace Initiative, and the International Peace Bureau.
