Ann-Marie Orler, United Nations Police Adviser

The United Nations aims to achieve an increase of at least 20 per cent more women police officers in peacekeeping by 2014.

That's according to Anne-Marie Orler, the UN Police Adviser. She says women police officers play a critical role in combating the scourge of sexual and gender based violence.

She tells UN Radio's Donn Bobb that women are not only victims. They can also be protectors of security.
