Guiding Feminist Discourse on Sexual Violence in Syria

Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict, sexual violence against women has been used as a systemic weapon of war.

In 2020, WILPF connected with key stakeholders to influence discourse, analysis and work related to sexual violence and its impact on Syrian women.

WILPF was able to successfully influence, the International, Impartial Independent Mechanism (IIIM) to apply WILPF’s proposed feminist contextual and analytical approach to their work, guiding their gender analysis framework to address sexual violence.
