Please join us for the Canadian launch of Ray Acheson’s new book “Banning the Bomb, Smashing the Patriarchy”. Ray is the Director of Reaching Critical Will, the disarmament program of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) and has written this important book on new nuclear disarmament.
The story in this book offers a look inside the antinuclear movement and its recent successful campaign to ban the bomb. From scrappy organizing to winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017 and achieving a landmark UN treaty banning nuclear weapons, Ray Acheson narrates the journey of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons and developments in feminist disarmament activism.
The book launch is organized by the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace, Science for Peace and WILPF-Canada and is being held in commemoration of the International Women’s Day for Peace and Disarmament.
