Women, Peace and Security: Keeping the Promise

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Sep 30, 2015 | Oxfam

Women and girls have access to fewer resources to protect and sustain themselves and are more often excluded from political processes essential for peace and security. In 2000, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1325 to uphold women’s rights in conflict and their roles in peace and security. Despite signs of progress, the impact on women’s lives and roles has been sporadic. In this paper, Oxfam calls for a holistic approach informed by a comprehensive gender analysis that addresses not just women’s technical capacity and advocacy skills but also their basic needs.
