The Passion is based on the story of the 1300 women who gathered in The Hague in 1915 for the only international peace congress of WWI. They passed resolutions to stop the war and set the agenda for human rights for the next 100 years. At their 2nd congress in Zurich in 1919, they further established principles for permanent peace and helped save the lives of millions of children affected by post-war food blockades.
On the centenary of the disastrous Treaty of Versailles, and when climate change is finally being recognised as the global emergency it is, The People’s Passion reflects on the transforming potential of compassionate wisdom and women’s leadership as encouragement for people’s movements today.
