Index of Statements made during the General Debate of the 72nd Session of the General Assembly (19-25 September 2017)


The Gender Index examines the statements delivered by the representatives of Member States and delegations with an observer status, as well as the President of the UN General Assembly and the UN Secretary-General, during the General Debate of the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA72) from the Feminist Peace perspective based on transforming gen- dered power, stigmatising war and violence and strengthening political economies of peace. It in- cludes all references to specific WILPF PeaceWomen themes, women’s rights and experiences, as well as references to conflict prevention, reform of the multilateral system and sustainable peace. It also provides a gender-specific assessment of the references to specific country situations and determines the number of female speakers.
