#SHEcurity Campaign Statement
It’s been 20 years since resolution 1325 on “Women, Peace and Security” was passed. There are countless women shaping peace and security around the world. Still too often, they remain unrecognized and under-represented in the field. Resolutions, action plans, and strategies have been written; women have fought loudly for participation and equal opportunities. But things are moving too slowly, prejudices prevail and structural discrimination persists. It is high time to speed things up. That’s why: Peace needs women. More and fast.
