Online Event Report: The Progress and Potential of Women's Leadership: Survivors of Sexual Violence Step Up and Speak Out to Promote Transitional Justice

On 12th October 2020, the Mukwege Foundation, together with UN Women and the office of the
SRSG CRSV, 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.
