All displaced people are at risk of sexual and gender-based violence and exploitation. The risk is particularly high for women and girls. The Women’s Refugee Commission works to prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence by helping to ensure access to critical services for refugees, such as education, work opportunities, and sexual and reproductive health care. We partner and collaborate with local organizations and the international humanitarian community to improve safety and services.

Our Work

Our sexual and gender-based violence focus explores how to prevent and respond to gender-based violence, address sexual violence against refugees of all gender identities, and better understand the impact conflict and crises has on child marriage.
