Maleeha Lodhi Speaks At Security Council Open Debate On Women

New York (October 26, 2018): Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN, Maleeha Lodhi says, Women suffer the most in war situations. Women are soft targets in conflict situations, often exploited by aggressors as a tactic of war.

Pakistan on Friday urged the UN Security Council to focus on protracted conflicts especially Jammu and Kashmir and Palestine to protect women who continue to suffer disproportionately from the violence perpetuated by foreign occupation.

Speaking in the Security Council Debate on Women Peace and Security, Ambassador Lodhi further pointed out that women remain excluded from peace processes and negotiations because of structural inequalities and discriminatory power structures, which inhibit efforts for inclusive peace.Speaking about the commitment of Pakistan’s new government to women’s empowerment, Ambassador Lodhi said that this was among its top priorities. “My own country’s experience showed that giving women key roles, brings fresh perspectives and builds solid foundations for a vibrant society,” she said.
