If you are signed up for our email newsletter, know that you will receive a copy of this report meant for policy makers on the day of the event.

To create a world where all people and the planet are safe and free from nuclear threats, it’s imperative we harness the insight and experience the entire security field has to offer by working toward greater inclusivity and representation. Learn more about the Ploughshares Fund Women's Initiative and about making a dedicated gift to that initiative, today.

Our recently launched Women's Initiative aims to increase the role of voices working to reduce nuclear threats and to shine a light on the present and historic injustices in the field. With your support, we can unbuckle the "consensual straitjacket" and build a nuclear policy field that is open to new and diverse perspectives.

Here are the details of the launch of our new report, A New Vision for Gender and National Security, which is taking place at an exciting event you can participate in through Facebook livestream. Here are those details.
