15 May each year is designated International Conscientious Objectors’ Day. A day when people all over the world pay tribute to those who have resisted—and continue to resist—war.
100 years after the International Congress of Women in The Hague, the focus of commemorations in 2015 is on the role of women war resistors.
This assembly reflects on the story of the women peacemakers who assembled in The Hague a century ago, reflects on their efforts to bring an end to the carnage of the First World War, and invites students to think about how they can work for peace today.
