Women and girls in emergencies

In times of crisis, when familial and community structures and institutions are disrupted or destroyed, gender norms may be impacted and gender inequality increased. The report Women and Girls in Emergencies looks at six areas, each of which impacts gender norms and women’s ability to survive, cope, and recover from natural disasters and conflicts.
