In this edition of the PeaceWomen E-News we are highlighting the remarkable efforts of women around the world to bring about sustainable, positive and peaceful political change. The participation aspect of Resolution 1325 is in many ways its lynchpin. Unfortunately, this is also the area in which implementation of the resolution has been particularly ad hoc and limited.
