Feminist Security Council: Hand-Out

Kind of Resource:

What would a feminist Security Council agenda look like? The UN Security Council is responsible for maintaining peace and security in accordance with the principles of the United Nations, including women's equal rights and prevention of war. Yet because violence against women exists everywhere, no country in the world is a country without conflict for women. 

WILPF has developed an info-graphic and series of resources to envision how the Security Council mandate could work for women, and push the international community to change from business as usual toward feminist peace.

This info-graphic and resources show how patriarchal security fails women and why it is time to demand a Feminist Security Council Agenda for peace.
