Dear colleagues and friends,
PeaceWomen is pleased to announce the launch of our new upgraded website PeaceWomen.org on May 20, 2010. The revamped website will provide a user-friendly online platform to access information and exchange resources on women, peace and security. The website also offers an increased level of interactivity. Users can submit their own documents and updates and they can create a MyPeaceWomen profile.
The 10th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security in October 2010 offers an opportunity for Member States, the United Nations, and civil society to work together to ensure that concrete, measurable, and positive action is taken to empower and protect women in conflict situations.
PeaceWomen aims to use our website to further these efforts and promote accountability in the lead up to October and beyond this anniversary. The new website provides simplified navigation, classification of content (by women, peace and security theme; by topic; by country/region), and advanced search functions.
The new PeaceWomen.org website will include the following advanced tools:
PeaceWomen continues to transfer archives and rebuild the website over the coming weeks and months. We would appreciate any feedback on the website, and any suggestions would be very welcome as we work together to improve information gathering, monitoring and sharing in all aspects of the women, peace and security agenda.
Maria Butler & The PeaceWomen Team
