United Nations, New York, May 2009 - Today, more than 110,000 peacekeepers currently serve in 18 UN peace operations around the world with more countries contributing police and military personnel now than ever before. But it's not only the diversity of nationalities that will continue to change the facing of UN peacekeeping - it's also the more prominent presence of women.

"Women in Peacekeeping: The Power to Empower" highlights the importance of increasing the overall number women military, police and civilian peacekeepers, while underscoring the vital role they play and the unique skills they bring to the frontlines and struggles around the world. Through compelling footage and stories of women peacekeepers in action across the globe, to interviews with key UN officials, this video helps us better understand the profound impact women can have in maintaining peace and security
