Peace building


Of particular concern to the international community is the low political participation and engagement of women in peace building and reconstruction processes in post‑conflict situations across the world.Sexual violence is a major barrier to women’s participation in peacebuilding and recovery. Violence against ‘political’ women speaking up in public, defending human rights or seeking political office is very common in post‑conflict countries and strongly dissuades women from participating in public life, let alone seeking political office.
