The Security Council, as the principal body of the United Nations for retaining international peace and security, played its role by intervening in conflicts between governments during the cold war era. In the new post-cold war paradigm, besides the previous role, the Council was tasked with making norms of international concepts especially on peace. The Security Council through normative resolutions by emphasizing “sexual considerations” in its international peace and security task from the year 2000 has affected the concept of peace. Such an approach, which has led to an important development in the Council’s activities, as well as women’s rights, came to be known as “Women, Peace, and Security”. Ten resolutions have been ratified by the Security Council on the issue of “women, peace and security” in less than two decades, from 2000 to 2019. It shows the high importance of the connection between the issue of women and international peace and security, and reiterates the significant role of the Security Council in the development of the peace norm.
