WAND, originally Women’s Action for Nuclear Disarmament and now Women Aligned for New Directions, is a group whose mission is to empower women to act politically to reduce violence and militarism, and redirect excessive military resources toward unmet human and environmental needs.

WAND is engaged with women in politics; many of the women on WAND's board serve the government in some capacity and WAND is particularly active lobbying for peace.

As of January 2003, WAND has been engaged in issues in Iraq and Afghanistan, Women's Issues and Nuclear Issues. See www.wand.org for particular stands on issues such as the Treaty for the Rights of Women, the pre-emptive attack on Iraq and national missile defense.
