Girls and women’s empowerment to participate in the peace process
The counter-terrorism community has recognised that girls and women can and do play multiple roles in the terrorism equation – not just as victims. Women have also been enablers, supporters, and members of violent extremist and terrorist groups, and they have been perpetrators of terrorist attacks. On the positive side of the equation, women have been dissuaders and preventers of radicalisation and recruitment. More progress is needed to empower women and enable them to participate in the peace building process. With this in mind, Women In International Security (WIIS), an organisation dedicated to advancing the leadership and professional development of women in the field of international peace and security has launched a series of roundtable discussions to bring together the counter-terrorism communities. Read their latest policy brief here.  GWI advocates for education as an essential requirement to empower women to participate in the peace-building process.
