New UN Women documentary on women, conflict and peacekeeping

Side by Side: Women, Peace and Security

“Of the 565 of the peace agreements made between 1990 and 2010, 16 per cent mentioned the word women ; 7 per cent mentioned gender equality or women’s rights; and just 3 per cent mention gender-based violence. These are just one set of startling statistics reported by a new documentary from the Government of Australia, in partnership with UN Women.”
