Founded in 1915 by Jane Addams, the first female Nobel Peace Prize winner, along with women from 12 other countries, the Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom (WILPF) is the oldest and largest feminist peace group in the world. The organization stemmed from a meeting at The Hague only 10 months before the outbreak of World War I. The secretary general’s office is in Geneva, Switzerland, with the U.S. headquarters in Philadelphia and an office in New York.
Interns work with the all-female staff that runs the office in a feminist mode. Positions are usually available in leadership/outreach and development. There is also a Dean Reed Program intern who works with WILPF branches around the country.
Open to all college and grad students and recent college graduates.
