10 years ago the groundbreaking UN Resolution 1325 was passed.
This extraordinary Resolution recognises the devastating impact of conflict on women and states that women must be involved in building peace.
Whilst 1325 is extraordinary in principle, a decade later, a lack of implementation means its impact is not being felt by women.
Resolution1325 is an important tool for involving women in shaping peace. Now it needs clear political will and action to drive it forward.
