Women are the backbone of displaced populations and, in humanitarian emergencies, play a vital role in the alleviation of poverty, prevention of conflict and in sustaining peace. Yet they are largely excluded from decisions that ensure their very survival, often because they are busy caring for and providing for their families in insecure environments. They are a particularly vulnerable population, as sexual violence is being increasingly used as a weapon of war against women and girls.
