Women have historically been involved in conventional and nonstate armed groups across all continents, with more contemporary actions in countries ranging from El Salvador to Uganda, Indonesia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Nonetheless, women have also been vastly underrepresented in the peace rocesses following these wars. To begin correcting this imbalance, GOC and guerrilla FARC-EP peace negotiators in Havana, Cuba, implemented the Gender Subcomission two years into the peace talks with the mandate of ensuring a tailored approach to gender in the peace accords.
