CODEPINK: Women for Peace identifies itself as "a women initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement that seeks positive social change through proactive, creative protest and non-violent direct action."[1]

"Rejecting the George W. Bush Administration's color-coded security alerts that are based on fear, CODEPINK is a feisty call for women and men to wage peace. In less than a year, CODEPINK has become a vibrant presence in the peace and social justice movement. Very visible and recognizable simply by wearing pink, CODEPINK has found a niche in the movement by addressing serious issues in a multitude of creative - and sometimes outrageous - ways, always bringing into play the sensibilities of respect, compassion and interconnectedness."[2]

In a 2009 article critical of Code Pink Daniel Libit of Politico.com wrote, "While Code Pink claims an e-mail list of 200,000, it has neither the fundraising prowess nor the political might of, say, MoveOn. And while MoveOn does its thing with online work, advertisements, grass-roots mobilization and money, Code Pink has instead most often reached for noisy confrontation: protests and outbursts at hearings that typically do more annoying than persuading."
