Abstract

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, adopted in 2000, called for gender mainstreaming in relation to peace and security. The term has been widely used and applied to a range of measures and as such requires further examination. This article seeks to do so in the context of UN Peacekeeping activities. Gender mainstreaming is a term which first emerged as a concept at the Fourth Women’s World Forum held in Beijing in 1995. The Beijing forum was held in order to address women’s inequality and called for women’s empowerment. Gender mainstreaming was recognized as the primary mechanism to achieve these goals
