Guided by United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) on women, peace and security and the Solemn Declaration on Gender Equality in Africa (2004), five women's organizations with the support of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) and under the leadership of the Uganda Women's Network (UWONET) engaged in consultations from 10 – 14 October in Northern Uganda. These consultations were undertaken to demonstrate solidarity with the women of Northern Uganda and gather the views of women most acutely affected by the 20-year conflict on the current ongoing peace process in Juba.
