Women and girls are disproportionately exposed to violence in conflict and post-conflict situations. In addition they are excluded from peacebuilding. Only 1 in 40 peace agreement signatories over the past 25 years were women.
This results in ineffective global security policies and undermines womens rights. CARE advocates for the full implementation of UN Security Council resolution 1325 on Women Peace and Security and other related resolutions, and undertakes holistic programmes in 77 countries to tackle gender based violence.
