UNSCR 1325 at 20 Years: Perspectives from Feminist Peace Activists
21 October 2020
9:00 – 10:30 am, (US Eastern Standard Time EST) (Kl: 15 svensk tid)
About the Event
There are ten Women, Peace and Security resolutions, many frameworks for gender equality, and countless commitments by member states, but we still live in a world with war and violence, where women and girls are disproportionately affected. Women are leading the way for peace in their communities, whether through early warning systems, peace processes, or advocating for human rights to education and livelihood.
Join women leaders and peace activists from Australia, Colombia, Libya, Nigeria, and Sweden as they share their experiences advocating for peace and human security in their communities. Their reflections are also part of WILPF’s upcoming report about the past 20 years of WPS implementation, from the perspective of women peace activists.
