About you-cant-build-peace-leaving-half-the-people-out

The campaign is currently focusing on women's rights in Afghanistan twelve years after military intervention in the country.



Women are a prime target in conflict. Yet when it comes to building peace, women are excluded. Launched at the 10th anniversary of a groundbreaking UN resolution that calls for women's inclusion in peacebuilding, our campaign is simple. You can’t build peace leaving half the people out.  

Women are potentially vital agents for peacebuilding. Their active involvement is a powerful force for change.

The UK has a key role to play. No women, no peace has created the momentum to move the issue up the public and political agenda. We will call on the UK Government to honour commitments made to women in conflict and continue to report on progress.
