Commemorating 20 years of UN Security Council Resolution 1325,

a Special Interactive Online Event

 On 12th, October 2020, the Mukwege Foundation, together with UN Women and the Office of the UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) on Sexual Violence in Conflict, was honoured to host an interactive online event marking the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security. This landmark resolution affirmed to the international community what survivors of sexual violence in conflict-affected countries have long known: that peace and security efforts are more sustainable and effective when women are equal partners at the table. Twenty years later, the ground-breaking ambition of the Women, Peace, and Security agenda has yet to be fully realised, and still has great potential to lead to real changes on the ground. The event took stock of the successes and challenges faced by survivors who are leading advances on the front lines of transitional justice in their countries,and featured survivors from across the world, putting them into conversation with world-renowned panellists.
