The UN Security Council Resolution on Women, Peace & Security
Adopted unanimously by the UN Security Council on 31 October 2000, 1325 calls for women’s participation in conflict resolution, peacekeeping, and peacebuilding. The now-closed Women’s Tribune Center, which specialized in disseminating information from the UN in forms usable at the grassroots, commissioned radio announcements and dramas on the topic. Included in this 2007 WINGS production are dramas from Uganda, the Philippines, and Liberia. Also two interviews – see Guests.
