imagesAl Mezan Center for Human RightsFact-sheet on Women in Armed Conflict, 2012 – Part of “Strengthening national capacities to monitor and document and advocate for women’s rights in times of armed conflict” project funded by OSF

This fact-sheet shows to what extent women in the Gaza Strip are affected by armed conflict between Palestinians and the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF). It also shows the historic development of women’s rights and the international community’s attempts to enhance women’s rights during armed conflict as well as in normal conditions. The fact-sheet shows the indirect consequences that women tolerate even when they are not the direct victims.

Women’s Protection in Armed Conflicts and Enhancing their Participation in Peace
Building and Protecting their Rights Armed conflicts are considered the source of a various number of violations of international humanitarian law or international human rights law. Figures show that in any armed conflict, internal or external, the most vulnerable groups in society are women, children, people of low socioeconomic status, and people who have been marginalized. These are the people who are most likely going to be subject to violations of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and International Human Rights Law (IHRL).

Therefore, IHL was developed over several years in order to provide protection for such groups, particularly women. The most successful achievement in this regard has been the United Nation’s Security Council (UNSC) Resolution No. 1325 of 2000 on the protection of women in times of war and enhancing their role in prevention and resolution of armed conflict, peace building and post-conflict situations. The international community sought development and monitoring of women’s situations in armed conflicts around the world. The UNSC ratified a number of resolutions related to the aforementioned resolution as resolution number 1,820 of 2008, 1,888, and 1889 of 2009. In October 2010, the UNSC commemorated the tenth anniversary of ratifying resolution 1,325. In December 2012, the UNSC issued resolution number 1,960. Continue reading.
