    Where Do We Go From Here? Moving Forward with the Gender Equality Objective of the Call to Action Road Map

    Gender-based violence is deeply rooted in gender inequality and women’s disempowerment. GBV is one of the primary obstacles to achieving gender equality, and gender inequality perpetuates norms that promote GBV. In order to effect change on GBV, gender equality programming must be an integral part of the work.

    The Women's Refugee Commission has issued a brief that focuses on the Call to Action on Protection from Gender-based Violence in Emergencies, and how it addresses the linkages between gender inequality and gender-based violence (GBV).

    Refugee women’s path to equality and self-reliance

    For more than 100 years, March 8 has been celebrated as International Women’s Day. And for more than 100 years, the day has provided a chance to take stock of the status of women and women’s rights around the world.

    While it’s indisputable that the situation has improved for some women, there’s still a long way to go before women everywhere are recognized for their strength, their abilities, and their leadership capacities.

    Gender Equality and Self-Reliance: Interlinked Components of Refugee Women’s Protection and Economic Empowerment

    This blog was cross-posted from Medium.

    This week the world is at Women Deliver — the largest convening ever held focused on gender equality. While we all know that making progress on gender equality has been problematic in the world’s most stable, economically advanced societies, how much more so in states plagued by conflict and displacement. In humanitarian response we seldom discuss the role of women’s livelihoods as critical to advancing gender equality and we seldom promote gender equality as a means to tackle and mitigate risks of gender-based violence. The silo-ing of these efforts and interventions is a zero-sum gain.

    Putting gender equality and women’s rights at the heart of humanitarian response

    This week, more than 6,000 advocates, policy experts, and government officials from around the world are gathering in Vancouver, Canada, for the triennial Women Deliver Conference (WD2019). The event—the world’s largest conference on gender equality and the health, rights, and well-being of women and girls—will, for the first time in its history, include a focus on humanitarian response.

    Urgent Action Needed to Reform Gender Discriminatory Nationality Laws Causing Childhood Statelessness

    UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, UNICEF, and the Global Campaign for Equal Nationality Rights, which is housed at the Women's Refugee Commission, are calling for urgent action to reform gender discriminatory nationality laws that remain a root cause of global childhood statelessness.

    A new report released this week by the three organizations highlights that 25 countries still retain laws that deny women the right to pass their nationality to their children on an equal basis with men, while three countries also have laws that deny men the right to pass their nationality to children born outside of legal marriage.
