The United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations held meetings at the end of March to address the small number of women in peacekeeping missions that hold uniformed posts. The meetings brought together representatives from womens organizations, women that hold peacekeeping positions with the UN as well as military and police officials from states that contribute as well as those that host peacekeepers in an attempt to address this issue.
