Security Council resolution 1325 was a landmark in collective security, making the link between women's security and international peace and security.

This book argues it is time to rethink the way the women, peace and security framework has impacted on peacekeeping, gender equality and collective security, drawing lessons from past practices and re-framing gender perspectives. From the hyper visibility of sexual violence to strategies for 'counting the women', this book considers the limitations of the contemporary women, peace and security agenda. It urges for a renewed structure that returns to the anti-militarist agenda associated with feminist thinking and one that recognises and responds to women's diversity and takes seriously the dangers of pursing peace through the Security Council.
