'Where Wars Rage, Women Suffer': UN Chief

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres addressed the Security Council, emphasizing the impact of wars and authoritarianism on women and girls' rights globally. He highlighted the challenges faced by women's organizations in securing funding while military spending increases, the issue of perpetrators of sexual violence going unpunished, and the exclusion of women from peace processes.

This statement coincided with the release of a new UN report on women, peace, and security during the UN Security Council Open Debate. The report revealed that in 2022, more than 600 million women and girls were living in conflict-affected countries. Guterres' remarks underscore the urgent need for greater attention to women's rights and inclusion in efforts to promote peace, security, and conflict resolution around the world.
