The EastWest Institute's Parliamentarians Network for Conflict Prevention cordially invites you to a roundtable discussion on the influence of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda in U.S. foreign policy. Participants will include State Senator Nan Grogan Orrock (D-Georgia), Delegate Ana Sol Gutiérrez (D-Maryland) and Women's Action for New Directions (WAND) Public Policy Director Tanya Henderson.
The event will focus on EWI's recent report, Stronger Together, which addresses the role of women parliamentarians in rebuilding post-conflict societies, particularly Afghanistan, Pakistan and other MENA countries. The discussion will address how domestic implementation of UN Security Council resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security impacts women's political roles.
