Women's role essential for a global ceasefire
21 May 2020 - Under-Secretaries-General for UN Women, for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs and for Peace Operations make a joint call to ensure women are central to global ceasefire efforts. They say that the global COVID-19 pandemic is a wake-up call: the world cannot face conflict and a pandemic at the same time. This is why the call for an immediate global ceasefire by the United Nations Secretary-General is so crucial. Women everywhere are working against tremendous odds to bring about peace. With women fully engaged, we will emerge stronger from the crisis.
