In this article I make direct reference to and analysis of the UNSC 1325 as a tool that is earmarked for women and girl children. The instrument advocates strongly for social justice for women who find themselves in precarious situations due to conflict in their countries of birth. The instrument offers a framework for realising and practising peace and working towards security in a manner that is gender sensitive and cognisant of the international human rights law.
