1. WOMEN, PEACE AND SECURITY NEWS
IRAQ CONSTITUTION ‘BIG DISAPPOINTMENT' FOR WOMEN
The PeaceWomen Team
This edition of the PeaceWomen E-News focuses on women, peace and security issues in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The issues dealt with in this context find reflection in many parts of the world. As can be seen from our news stories (Item 2) these range from sexual violence in conflict to women's participation in peace processes, elections and government.
The items in this month's 1325 PeaceWomen E-News centre around the theme of Protection. This month's News (Item 2) reflects various protection needs across all regions – ranging from issues related to sexual violence, to those linked to humanitarian crisis and crime. These issues cannot be considered in isolation and do, of course, impact women's opportunities and capacities to fully participate in public life.
