Yet, women are still frequently excluded from formal peace processes and decision-making. Their diverse experiences, knowledge and expertise often go unrecognized.
In 2000, the United Nations Security Council adopted its landmark resolution 1325, which recognized for the first time the importance of, and the need to strengthen, women's full, equal, and meaningful participation in peace and political processes.
Twenty years and ten resolutions later, there has been progress but this promise has not been fully realized. Through this interactive exhibition, we invite you to discover some of the many women bringing and maintaining peace in Africa, the Middle East and South America.
And who better to capture their efforts than women photographers who share their struggles?
