Summary

Through this project, WFM-IGP will leverage the power of two global coalitions, the CICC and ICRtoP, which encompass almost 2,600 activist organizations, to bring an end to impunity for sexual and gender- based violence (SGBV) in conflict, promote international accountability for the protection of women's human rights, and empower women in conflict and post-conflict situations to seek justice for themselves and their communities.

Challenge

Atrocity crimes and SGBV in conflict disproportionately affect women and girls at an alarming rate, especially those from indigenous and rural communities. Historically, many of the grave abuses suffered by women in situations of armed conflict have been marginalized or overlooked, and perpetrators of these horrific crimes have not been held accountable. These women not only deserve to see redress, but also have a critical role to play in the fight for global justice and peace.

Solution

We will empower women through workshops on justice for SGBV, conflict prevention and peace-building; train armed forces to recognize and stop SGBV; mobilize global advocacy for an end to impunity for these crimes and for the protection of indigenous women and women human right's defenders; campaign for gender-equal leadership in the International Criminal Court; and, bring women's rights and human right's activists to international forums on justice, peace and security.

Long-Term Impact

By leveraging the power of global activist networks, we will amplify the voices of women speaking out on issues of atrocity prevention and impunity for SGBV; empower them to seek justice for themselves and their communities; and bring the diverse, locally-grounded perspectives of our coalition members to those with power to create real, systemic change in our global systems of justice and security.
