Why do we need more women in +UN Peacekeeping operations?

Today women represent only 6% of UN peacekeepers in the positions of staff officers and military observers.

The Head of +unpeacekeeping, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, called on all troop contributing countries to increase this number to 15% by the end of 2017. As of today only 16 out of the 120 troop contributing countries meet the required threshold.

Women peacekeepers can empower women in the host communities, interview survivors of gender-based violence, strengthen the situational awareness of the mission by interacting with women in societies where women are prohibited from speaking to men, and assist female ex-combatants during the process of reintegration into civilian life.
