According to the U.N. report on Women, Peace, and Security, there have been gains in the broad areas for action set out in the resolution: awareness of the importance of gender equality, development of national action plans, gender mainstreaming, capacity building and support for greater participation of women in decision-making, including in elections and governance. However, a gap between policies and implementation of the resolution remains, in particular at the national level. To read more, see the IPS website.
