Faces de Eva. Estudos sobre a Mulher

Print version ISSN 0874-6885


SANTOS, Agnieszka Fal-Dutra. Why does peace matter for the feminist and women’s movement gender equality? Disentangling the relationships between women and peace and security and the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. Faces de Eva. Estudos sobre a Mulher [online]. 2020, n.43, pp.35-59. ISSN 0874-6885.

The year 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Platform of Action (BPFA) and the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 on women, peace and security. It is an opportunity for reflection on the linkages between the two historic documents. In this paper, I explore these linkages from three standpoints. Firstly, conceptually, I show a strong dependency between gender equality and peace. Secondly, historically, I argue that BPFA gave an impetus to a feminist and women’s peace movement which led to the adoption of UNSCR 1325. Finally, I answer the question: are these linkages still pertinent today?

Keywords : Women; peace; security; gender; Beijing.
