The 10th Anniversary of SCR 1325 is approaching at a rapid pace. News, events, and initiatives are constantly being added to the compendium on the 1325+10 section of the PeaceWomen website.
Particularly worthy of note are the activities of WILPF Sweden and of WILPF United States, and the launch of their anniversary website.
Additionally, the Literature Repository is still accepting Papers. WILPF invites submission of papers on a broad range of issues around the implementation of 1325, as part of the Women, Peace and Security: From Resolution to Action Geneva High-Level Consultation 15-16 September 2010, Geneva. Details can be found here.
Women rarely fight the world's wars, but they often suffer the most. Resolution 1325 called for women's full and equal participation in all elements of peacemaking, and for prevention of sexual kind of violence. But implementation of this historic resolution has been too slow. More details about the petition can be found here.
