Protection

About

Working Group Working Group on Women and P/CVE (WGWC) works in the mainstreaming of gender in the prevention of violent extremism on the basis of Resolution 1325, the Pillar of Protection. This pillar develops alternative narratives of gender-based construction of culture and the voices of women victims to deconstruct gender narratives of extremist groups.


And the foundation of work in the pillar of protection strengthens the capacity of law enforcers (police, judges and prosecutors) to understand the relationship between gender based violence and extremism. We also encourage the fulfillment of the rights of victims of extremism, specifically women and children, in order to gain access to justice. Furthermore, we also encourage law enforcement against symbols of hatred, bullying and persecution.
