Human Rights for Refugee Women and Girls
December 10th marks both Human Rights Day and the end of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence Campaign. We look at the intersection of these issues and ask - how do women and girls experience and respond to displacement as a result of conflict? And how do they access their human rights in these extremely challenging contexts? This update provides a collection of resources addressing these issues looking at Syria and other regions around the world.
