Women and Women's Rights
This week marks the seventeen-year anniversary of the adoption of the landmark UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. The international agreement acknowledges the disproportionate impact of armed conflict on women and girls and affirms the importance of women in conflict prevention, peace negotiations, peace-building, peacekeeping, humanitarian response and post-conflict reconstruction. To date, sixty-nine states have launched National Action Plans to implement the resolution.
