The subordination of women is increasingly at the centre of extremist ideology around the world, according to the author of a report on the implementation of a landmark UN resolution.

Security Council Resolution 1325, which was adopted 15 years ago, addresses the excessive impact of war on women.

It also highlights the role that women can play in conflict resolution and peace.

Radhika Coomaraswamy is the lead author of the Global Study which aims to make the resolution effective.

Daniel Dickinson asked her what evidence she has that women are being increasingly targeted in conflict situations.
