|The rise in violent extremism is an undeniable threat to international peace and security, directly affecting peaceful and fragile settings alike. There is a need now more than ever to understand the phenomenon, mitigate its impact and prevent its recurrence. Women and girls are differentially affected by violent extremism. They are often the first victims of violent extremist groups, experiencing horrific violations of their rights, including to education, health care, public life and decision making over their own bodies. UN-led investigations have uncovered a wide range of sexual and gender-based crimes including rape, forced marriage, abductions and sexual slavery, highlighting the use of gender-based crimes as part of the strategic objectives of violent extremist groups. Women are also, however, impacted by counter-terrorism policies which can curtail their rights and impact their quality of life. Increasingly, they are themselves being recruited, forcibly or willingly, to these groups.
In this context, UN Women will commission Social Mapping Study to gain deeper insights into the gender dynamics of extremist violence, including the scale of the situation. This empirical study will provide data to understand why women join and remain in violent extremist groups in Bangladesh, and how they are recruited.
