It's "time to act" to end gender violence in conflict through gender equality.

That's the message delivered by the United Kingdom Permanent Mission to the UN at a special event in New York on Tuesday.

The hashtag is being used as a social media campaign to encourage people get involved in the fight.

Many are "tweeting" and forming virtual communities to discuss the issue, the Deputy Permanent Representative Peter Wilson said.

He began by explaining to Jocelyne Sambira what the focus of the event was.
