International Women`s Partnership for Peace and Justice (IWP) is a local, spiritual based feminist organization working to support grassroots women`s activism in Thailand and the Asian region. Founded in 2002, IWP leads workshops, retreats and training courses which share in common the integration of feminism, social action and spirituality for sustainability and transformation at the personal, community and society levels.
Building on freelance work we have done throughout Thailand and the region since 1997, our goal is to work systematically and strategically with grassroots groups over a sustained period of time, practicing a partnership culture that has spirituality as a core foundation of social activism. This is our effort to create alternatives to the hierarchical systems that dominate mainstream institutions and even progressive social movements. Currently, we work with women`s organizations, community peace groups, NGOs and grassroots activists in Thailand, Burma, India, and Sri Lanka.
