The main argument in this article is that the academic as well as policy related focus on sexual violence has brought women’s concerns to the table of international security concerns, namely to the United Nations Security Council through a number of resolutions in recent years. This has been important in order to create better protection measures and bring women’s agency to the forefront of political concern.
