Fact Sheet: Why is gender important for effective security and human rights?

This fact sheet on gender, security and human rights examines how security providers can impact women’s day-to-day lives and trigger gender-specific impacts. 

In June 2022, the Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance (DCAF), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Geneva Centre for Business and Human Rights (GCBHR) will release a new edition of the Toolkit on Addressing Security and Human Rights Challenges in Complex Environments. This fact sheet is a 'sneak preview' of the revamped Toolkit.
