Women’s Refugee Commission: Refugee Protection Must be Gender Specific

“We are looking for an explicit, detailed commitment to protect all displaced women and girls from gender-based violence while in transit and upon reaching their destinations. We are also calling for expansion of legal and safe employment opportunities that leverage the capacity of refugee women and youth to sustain and protect themselves and their families.” – Marcy Hersh, WRC senior advocacy officer
