>State of World Population 2010: From Conflict and Crisis to Renewal: Generations of Change 

>

The report highlights how women in conflict and post-conflict situations—as well as in emergencies or protracted crises— are faring a decade later.

Ten years ago, on 31 October 2000, the United Nations Security Council took an important and unprecedented step into new territory. Recognizing the vulnerability of women and girls to violence during and after armed conflict, and the absence or low level of women’s representation in efforts to prevent war, build peace and restore devastated societies, the Council passed resolution 1325. The resolution sought formally for the first time in the Security Council to end this neglect and actively to promote and draw on the untapped potential of women everywhere on issues of peace and security. The release of the 2010 edition of The State of World Population report coincides with the 10th anniversary of that historic resolution.
