Milestones: 2010 10th Anniversary

October 2010 marked the 10th anniversary of Security Council Resolution 1325, WILPF PeaceWomen participated in the events surrounding the anniversary and called for more systematic, consistent and comprehensive implementation.

In honour of the anniversary a number of events and initiatives were introduced, including the Call to Commitments initiative, a Security Council Open Debate on Women Peace and Security (26 October 2010) with advancements on global indicators and UN framework, a Civil Society Peace Fair, the convening of high-level special advisory groups (UN and civil society); the first ever UN Open Days in Peacekeeping and Political Missions; and numerous other activities, analysis and work. The anniversary was an opportunity to reflect on the first decade after UNSCR 1325 but also to galvanise action.
