March 8, 2019 at 3:02pm

The U.N. peacekeeping forces in Cyprus (UNFICYP) made history in 2019 by becoming the only mission led by a woman.

UNFICYP also has women heading both its military and police components.

The forces published a video today on the occasion of International Women’s Day reflecting on why gender parity is important for peace and diplomacy.
