“She Stands for Peace” is a podcast series that explores the state of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Africa, through a series of dialogues with key actors. From policymakers, to donors, and grassroots peacebuilders, the host, Dr. Yemisi Akinbobola, takes a deep dive to unpack the various insights and lived experiences of guests to explore the central question; “20 years after the UNSCR 1325 was passed, how far have we come?”. The interviews are insightful and inspiring, as they take stock and share forward-looking strategies for the implementation of UNSCR 1325, post-2020.
This podcast shares stories of resilient women and male allies who are fighting for peace and justice in their communities, from Afghanistan to Colombia to the United States. This season is produced by GIWPS and Adonde Media, in collaboration with UN Women and Our Secure Future.
