The Gender and Small Arms Fast Facts

The Gender and Small Arms Fast Facts series documents the multiple linkages between gender and small arms in South East Europe (SEE) and outlines the specific risks that women and men face with respect to firearm use and misuse. Fast Facts provides an overview of sex-disaggregated data related to ownership, access, demand for firearms and their impact on women and men, including the misuse of firearms in the context of domestic violence. Through improved access to sex-disaggregated data, Fast Facts strives to increase the knowledge and awareness of both professionals and the general audience about the highly gendered aspects of small arms. In addition, it provides policy makers in Serbia with an easy-to-use tool for evidence-based policy making and mainstreaming gender in small arms and light weapons control legislation and policies.
