In the context of the 20-year anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, Fight for Humanity and Berghof Foundation are organising an online event to discuss the promotion of the rights of women and girls in conflict settings − from the first-hand perspectives of women in leadership roles in territories governed by various armed and political movements.
In this webinar four women leaders will reflect upon the progress, the remaining challenges, and they will look forward towards what can be done within the next 20 years – and beyond – to implement UN SCR 1325, and more broadly to promote the rights of women and girls in their territories.
