Fifteen years after the creation of UNSCR 1325 and the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, women’s participation, protection and rights remain unfulfilled. This event in our ongoing Women, Peace and Security lecture series will feature a briefing from the women participants in a recent one-week long journey with North and South Korean women, and their historic crossing of the DMZ, their findings and message for the continued advocacy of ending the Korean War, division of millions of families, and reliance on militarisation.
