Violence Against Women: The Lethal Consequences of Arms

At Church Center for the United Nations, New York (NY), United States
On 5th March 2013 12:30 p.m.

Description

Women who speak out for their rights in militarized
and patriarchal societies face high level of threats
and violence. This event will open your eyes to the role
of arms. Arms increases the risk of lethal violence against
women and facilitate sexual and gender based violence.
Learn about how women’s organisations use resolution
1325 to make the link between violence against women,
insufficient arms control, and women’s economic and
political rights. 

Speakers:
Joy Onyesoh WILPF Nigeria;
Annie Matundu WILPF DRC,
Adilia Caravaca WILPF Costa Rica and
president WILPF International
Nina Ferrer WILPF Colombia
Facilitator: Josefine Karlsson WILPF Sweden
