Women leaders and peacekeepers brief UN Peace Chief on challenges of working for peace in South Sudan


The need for full and equal participation of women in all forms of political and civic life in South Sudan cannot be overemphasized. In this regard, visiting Under-Secretary-General for Peace Operations, Jean-Pierre Lacroix met with a cross section of women's representatives during his recent visit here. He also spent time with top women peacekeepers deployed to UNMISS to understand some of the challenges they face in executing the mission's mandate.
