Survivors: Women Affected by Gun Violence Speak Out

Thursday, June 1, 2006
International Action Network on Small Arms

This compilation contains only a sample of the testimonies that have been contributed to the IANSA Women's Network. These stories underscore the fact that effective solutions to the global gun crisis will require a new, gender-sensitive approach. We must develop policies that reflect the different ways women and men are affected by and respond to guns. We must also ensure that women are fully involved in small arms policy and practice – including reform and enforcement of national gun laws, conflict resolution, peacebuilding and development.
