Abstract
This essay explores and analyses the United Nations Security Council’s Resolution 1960 which address sexual violence in conflicts. This essays analyze is of the use of language in the resolution and the concepts used in the resolution. This essay will analyze the way women and men are portrayed and how the resolution uses the terms victim and perpetrator. The goal is to see how the language in the resolution may affect the actions to prevent and to stop sexual violence in conflicts. In this essay I argue that the language maintain stereotypes about who the victim of sexual violence is and sustain the power structure that is behind it.
