Women speak out for Peace
The International Day of Peace is on 21st September.
It provides an opportunity for communities around the world to call for and celebrate peace. It is also a time to reflect on progress made on the adoption of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 and supporting resolutions, 1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2106, 2122, on Women, Peace and Security (WPS). The Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) declare that the most critical element in these resolutions is the recognition of women’s roles as peacebuilders and decision-makers. If effectively implemented, the WPS resolutions could transform women’s images from those of victims to peacebuilders, decision-makers and agents of change.
