From Local to Global: Making Peace Work for Women

"Leadership of women is not just a matter of mandate. Women's leadership has to be bought with a clear vision, fired by commitment, nourished by credibility, galvanised by performance, and cradled incessantly in the bosom of power. It should stand in the bed rock of a politicized constituency, and a platform of results that would benefit not only women, but everyone in society."

- Dr Massouda Jalal, Minister for Women's Affairs, Afghanistan

In the next few weeks, I'm going to spend a few posts on the Security Council resolution 1325. It's been 6 years since this resolution, and I wanted to write about:
- UN's progress and responsibility
- UN System-Wide Action Plan
- Different departments/committees that merged
- Their recommendations
- The global leaders behind this
- Advocacy and awareness
- Resources: where to go for more
