Peace needs women.
More and fast.
In the year 2000, the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security was passed. Now, it is time to take stock: of participation and representation of women at all levels of decision-making in foreign and security policy, and of diversity in Peace and Security in general.
For 2022, we updated the #SHEcurity report while highlighting best practices on how to advance women’s representation and the broader WPS agenda across four different regions (Middle East and North Africa, Latin America, Africa and Asia).
Dear friends & supporters,
Three years after our launch, it’s time to open a new chapter: We want to make sure the work of #SHEcurity can be continued. That’s why we have submitted a proposal to the European Commission and the European External Action Service to finance & set up a collaborative WPS Dashboard.
This should be a space bringing together representatives of traditional foreign, security & defence policy with those working on gender issues in the field.
For now, we’ll take a break ️.
Launch of the 2022 Index
There are countless women shaping peace and security around the world. Still too often, they remain unrecognized and under-represented in the field. Resolutions, action plans, and strategies have been written; women have fought loudly for participation and equal opportunities. But things are moving too slowly, prejudices prevail and structural discrimination persists. It is high time to speed things up.
That’s why: Peace needs women. More and fast.
