This factsheet was developed to support States and stakeholders in mainstreaming gender across all areas of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). It offers information about gender-based violence, including recommendations to ensure effective implementation of the ATT and to tackle the gendered impacts of armed violence. It also outlines the current state of gender balance in ATT meetings and provides ideas to promote gender equality in conventional arms control.
