«No women – No peace»: Exhibition on UNSC Resolution 1325 in Bern
2010-11-01 – 2010-11-20, Bern (Switzerland), Public spaces, Kultur-Casino, Erlacherhof, Kino der Reitschule, Kino Cinématte
A multi media exhibition by PeaceWomen Across the Globe, supported by the Political Affairs Division IV of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and the city of Bern.
Women are especially concerned about war and violence. Across the globe, women actively work to find and create peaceful solutions to violent conflict. History clearly demonstrates that real peace and security are only possible when women are involved in peace processes, bringing their experiences and needs to the table.
In 2000, the UN Security Council recognized this by adopting Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security, demanding the inclusion of women in all peace negotiations. Ten years later, we are still very far away from this goal. Hopes and expectations remain unfulfilled.
Today, the 1000 PeaceWomen nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005 turn yet again to the UN Security Council, to UN member states and to the public with an urgent demand: Implement Resolution 1325 now! Our message is clear. No Women – No Peace.
