In 2015, there was a global military spend of $1.6 trillion (SIPRI). Meanwhile, gender equality and peace remain drastically under-funded: As the 2015 Global Study on UNSCR 1325 (Global Study) found, there is a “consistent, striking disparity between policy commitments to gender equality and women’s empowerment, and the financial allocations to achieve them” (p. 372).

Women’s rights are human rights; and progressively realising those rights using maximum available resources is a state obligation. Investing in women also brings significant benefits. Despite this, women’s contribution to conflict prevention and peace remains undervalued and under-resourced.

It is time to recognise that you get what you pay for: trillions on war and pennies for peace will only lead to violence. It is time to invest in gender equality and social justice policies and movements for peace.
