The week in Women, Peace and Security
It is time that we re-define
peace-building processes and adopt
a radical intersectional feminist approach that is based on the different
experiences and identities of women.
On October 31, 2019, the path-breaking UN Security Council Resolution mandating the inclusion of women in all stages of conflict resolution turned 19.
Nearly two decades after the U.N.
Security Council approved a landmark resolution on women’s engagement in peace
and security, much

citizens at the heart of its Presidency of the Security Council, as it
takes over from South Africa as the President of the United Nations Security

Women’s Network has been a beacon of light, leading the struggle for
women’s rights in Iraq.

economically, educationally and so on and so forth. The country cannot move
ahead if female
backwardness remained spoke in its progress.
