Women, Peace and Security programme
It goes without saying that war and conflict affect both men and women’s human rights. However, there are particular gendered dimensions to violence that have a disproportionate and differing impact on women.
Though women have been, and are, active agents in peace and reconciliation efforts at all levels, women and gender analysis are regularly excluded from peace-making processes and decisions.
WILPF believes that the exclusion of women, women’s rights and gender remains a key impediment to the attainment of sustainable peace and human security, and must not be ignored!
