Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) remains at crisis levels in South Sudan. Women become target during conflict. 25 November is the International Day to End Violence against Women, kicking off the #16days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. The National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security is designed to address this and must be implemented. Under UNSCR 1325, the Security Council reinforces the fact that in all armed conflicts women should not just be looked at as helpless victims of war and violence, but they should be fully recognized as having active and critical roles as peacebuilders, politicians, community leaders and activists and should be actively involved in all peace resolution and reconstruction processes.
