The Nuclear Ban Treaty: A game-changer for female participation?

Webinar 2: ‘The Nuclear Ban Treaty: A game-changer for female participation?'

The first thematic webinar will explore how the TPNW, recently entered into force, provides a unique aspect for a more effective participation of women in nuclear disarmament. As being the first nuclear international agreement to address gender impacts on nuclear weapons, the TPNW creates new landmarks towards a full representation of women. This representation goes beyond the involvement of women in weapons negotiations to touch on the role of women to ensure the implementation of the treaty. The panelists will challenge the dominant gendered narrative and examine ways in which the entry into force indicates a strong support for practical change. The webinar offers an incredible opportunity by inviting speakers from both diplomatic and grassroots/practical worlds to discuss policies and advocacy events. The ultimate purpose is to strengthen a more collective action for female participation through the TPNW to help attain global security.
