The Human Rights Council 20th Regular Session: Joint Statement on ”Effective remedies for conflict related sexual violence” by FAS, World YWCA, and WILPF

During the Human Rights Council 20th Regular Session taking place between 18 June to 6 July, Femmes Africa Solidarité (FAS) addressed the Human Rights Council in its plenary session, with a joint statement on ”Effective remedies for conflict related sexual violence”, together with their partners Young Women’s Christian Association (World WYCA) and Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom ( WILPF). The main concern outlined in the joint statement, was to highlight how the almost exclusive focus on sexual violence against women reinforces gender stereotypes of women as victims and objects of male protection.
