Abstract

In lieu of an abstract here is a brief excerpt of remarks by Ban Ki-moon on 25 September 2010 regarding Security Council resolution 1325.

"This landmark resolution raised awareness of the unique and grave issues that women and girls face during and after conflict. ...Women are still excluded from peace processes. The security sector in most countries is still dominated by men. When conflicts end, and international aid begins to come in, it is still not geared to the needs of girls and women. And -- most tragically and strikingly -- women and girls still suffer gender-based violence, including systematic sexual attacks, in and around armed conflict."

Full text of these remarks is found on the site for the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
