In October 2000, world leaders on peace and security adopted the historical Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000), which for the first time recognised women’s important role in conflict prevention through post-conflict reconstruction.
Since then the Security Council meets annually to debate on Women, Peace and Security usually in October. Traditionally, civil society speakers are invited to brief the Council on issues experienced and addressed by women in the realm of peace and security.
Every year WILPF leverages this space to transform gender power, stigmatise war, and strengthen movement building.
