This article reflects on the ten-year anniversary of ‘Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and\ud Security’ (hereinafter, “Resolution 1325”). The article contextualises the Security Council’s approach within feminist\ud legal thinking, using Resolution 1325 as a springboard for increased feminist conversations on the recurrent themes of\ud essentialism, victim feminism and praxis. It is argued that feminist action in the Security Council should extend these\ud debates. To this end, the article concludes with reflection on the possibility of force to save women, arguing that this\ud fourth axis of feminist debate be taken up with some urgency by feminist scholars and activists.
