WIDF[edit]

Women's International Democratic Federation

The Women’s International Democratic Federation (WIDF) was founded in December 1945 with the aim of preventing the recurrence of war and the resurgence of fascism for the sake of well being of the women and children; since the International Year of Women in 1975 main objectives are gender equality and empowering women; other demands are the elimination of nuclear weapons and reduction of military spending (Intl. Inst. of Soc. Hist.)
