Women & peace & security webcast

The Washington, D.C.-based U.S. Institute of Peace invites viewers to a webcast-only program entitled Women, Peace, and Security: Fulfilling the Vision of 1325, to be held 9:15 a.m.-noon EDT this Tuesday, July 27.
"1325" refers, of course, to U.N. Security Council 1325 (2000) on Women and peace and security (prior IntLawGrrls posts here, here, and here), a milestone that will mark its 10th anniversary on October 31 of this year. (As earlier announced, IntLawGrrls is planning an October 29 roundtable in connection with that anniversary.)
