From scrappy organizing to winning the Nobel Peace Prize
Ray Acheson is the Director of Reaching Critical Will, the disarmament program of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF).
Born in Canada and a key player in the campaign for a nuclear weapons ban treaty, she has written an important book that offers a look inside the anti-nuclear movement and its recent successful campaign to ban the bomb.
“Banning the Bomb, Smashing the Patriarchy” by Ray Acheson takes the reader from the 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.
