Sarah Douglas, Gender Advisor for the United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office, explained how women’s security acts as an early warning system and gender equality acts as an accelerator for social good. She shared examples of women movements that form the base of the civil society that the Sustaining Peace Agenda endeavors to strengthen. She ended by recommending that in the spirit of the Sustaining Peace Agenda, we listen and respond to what civil society say are their needs.
