Over the past two decades, women’s participation in constitution making has expanded. Women are increasingly taking on roles as drafters and technical experts, or otherwise representing the needs and interests of their communities. But women are not yet equal participants; an element of constitution reform that remains underexplored. This report examines the diverse roles that women play in constitution reform during peace and transition processes, their impact on constitution-reform processes and outcomes, and whether and how their participation links to peace and security outcomes.
