31 October 2000 was an historic date for women worldwide. On this day, the United Nations adopted Security Council Resolution (SCR) 1325 on women, peace and security. It called for the adoption of a gender perspective and addressed the need for women to take a more active role at all levels of decision-making, including in national, regional, and international institutions; in mechanisms for the prevention, management and resolution of conflict; and in peace negotiations and peace operations.
