International Women's Commission

In an energetic effort to work for a genuine negotiation towards a just and sustainable peace based on a two-state solution, 35 Palestinian, Israeli and international women leaders and activists met in Istanbul on 26–28 July 2005.
The group decided to establish for the first time an International Women's Commission to ensure the implementation of the groundbreaking UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (October 2000) that calls upon all state parties to ensure increased representation of women at all decision-making levels.
