Why do we need more women in peacekeeping operations?

Today women represent only 6% of UN peacekeepers. The Head of UN Peacekeeping, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, called on all troop contributing countries to increase this number to 15% by the end of the year.

Women peacekeepers can empower women in the host communities, strengthen the situational awareness of the mission by interacting with women in societies where women are prohibited from speaking to men, and assist female ex-combatants during the process of reintegration into civilian life.
