Powerful briefing from , reminding us that violence exists on a continuum-in both peace and in conflict, in public and in private. Indigenous women are even further marginalized due to entrenched discrimination. This is true in Canada as well.

In this case it's a setback. Women & men who suffer sexual violence in war need access to sexual & reproductive health services. A resolution which doesn't mention that is a big setback to agenda.

For those who are hoping for a veto, there wouldn’t be much room for Schadenfreude. A veto agnst an already watered down resolution sets a bad precedent & weakens the agenda. And it would hand anti-feminist forces an easy win.
