      If taken into account the contextual aspects of war, girls and women are often come through to face sexual harassment, which is highly shameful. They are asked to work as maids and after that to be faced with a brutal treatment as well.It for sure turns them to lose their self esteem, worth, value even families..!!

      It’s important because each geder has it’s own standards for living and choices. A clear set of rules would reduce the conflicts..! Everyone would know what sort of things are suitable for them . Even people would work to hekp each other..!!
      So no fights no arguments..!!!

      1. War affects women and girls by killing, displacing and impoverishing them, and subjecting them to sexual violence and enslavement. In modern wars, civilians are killed at far higher rates than combatants; women and children are the majority of civilians killed.
      2. To employ a gender approach is very important to stable a peacebuilding. A gendered approach to peacebuilding and conflict resolution should ensure that women are trained and employed in the police and security services, as the presence of more women in these forces has been shown to be effective in reducing the level of sexual violence.

      Women make up the majority of the civilian population and, as such, are affected by conflict to a greater extent, as they are more at risk of sexual abuse, human trafficking, resettlement and widespread slavery. Due to the higher degree of social vulnerability, girls and women often face specific forms of violence, the consequences of which persist even after the end of the war (for example, unwanted pregnancies due to rape, higher risks of sexually transmitted diseases). Sexual violence in armed conflict is often a tactic of war. Women make a significant contribution to post-conflict peacebuilding and reconstruction activities and play an important role in conflict resolution.

      1- Unfortunately, women and children are the most fragile group during the war, because they are exposed to violance, sexual violance and even slave trade.
      2- Gendered approach enables women and girls to employ without discrimination and participate the activities without doubt because it destroys the barriers of differences based of genders.

      How does war and conflict affect women and girls?
      Isolated case studies have documented how women experience multiple types of violence as a result of war. Evidence also suggests that while women and girls are more likely to be victims of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), SGBV against men and boys is also widespread during conflict
      Why is it important to employ a gendered approach in peacebuilding?
      Because there is a general consensus that a crucial component of a gendered approach to peacebuilding is to acknowledge gendered vulnerabilities and ensure that women and girls are afforded protection from violence.

      How does war and conflict affect women and girls?
      Women and girls are discriminated much more than men and boys, in war and in conflicts they are not the ones who have power. They are opressed, they lack power and their rights are many times not equal to men´s rights. When focusing on crimes in war sexual abuse and sexual violence are methods to keep women under pressure and to fight against opponents. The power of women is in that case stopped by men from enemies.

      Why is it important to employ a gendered approach in peacebuilding?
      Because peace is more likely to be when being from male sex, gendered approach needs to be installed to create peaceful environment for women and girls too. Also many initiatives have to be implemented for girls and women to know what peace is and to focus on peace from a gender perspective.

      1- Unfortunately, women and children are into continuous war in all aspects of society. A woman is not so physically strong as a man but is smarter, and these provoke many wars. Also, the majority of women are able to take care of the kids in any situation and this creates a permanent war with men.
      2- Gendered approach enables women and girls to employ without discrimination and participate the activities without doubt because it destroys the barriers of differences based of genders.

      Many aspects of war affect women and girls disproportionately. According to recent studies on life expectancy among unarmed civilians caught in armed conflict, women are the primary adult victims of war.For example, a unique harm of war on women is the trauma inflicted by military brothels, rape camps, sex trafficking for prostitution, and increased domestic violence. In addition, widows of war and women refugees of war are particularly vulnerable to poverty, prostitution, and higher illness and death following armed conflict.
      That’s why it’s very important to implement laws and prejudices to protect women’s rights and keep them away from violence and harassement.

      1. War effect everybody different psychologically, economically, or physically but the fact that when we remember the wartime sexual violence in history, it is so sad. Anybody can be a victim but the potential soldier rapes to the woman and girls is happening every time and it’s horrible.

      2. To beat the patriarchy and provide equality and respect.
