Amidst the international and regional efforts, and the ongoing changes in Yemen that aim to disarmament and achieving peace, and as a contribution from Abductees’ Mothers Association to build peace, the association held a training and discussion session for the association’s members and volunteers regrading the content of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, on women, peace, and security.
During the session that lasted for two days, the participants were familiarized with the content of the resolution that called to include women in conflict prevention, peacekeeping, conflict resolution and peacebuilding.
The participants, also, discussed the content of the resolution that highlights the importance of the gender-based involvement in decision making roles, as it was the first resolution that recognized the disproportionate and unique impact of armed conflict on women and girls, and highlighted the importance of their equal and full participation, as active agents in peace and security.
The participants concluded that session by proposing various recommendations to provide the needs of women during and after conflicts in order to protect their lives and safety.
They stressed on the importance of involving women in conflict resolution in Yemen and granting their inclusion in peace operation and post-conflict reconstruction.
The session, itself, was financed by Doria Feminist Fund, and part of the association’s community awareness program.
