We get this question a lot. "What difference can it possibly make having women’s leadership? Surely, it’s better just to get on with the response and worry about women’s rights after we have managed to meet all the basic needs?"
Well, it actually makes a huge difference! Check out our latest video to find out why.
Disasters, crises and conflicts have a disproportionate effect on women. They increase the likelihood of women's human rights violations. They often exclude women from decision making and deny them access to resources. At the same time, women and women's organizations are significantly underrepresented in humanitarian responses.
We know this has to change.
It starts with projects like this and people like you.
We're all about building power in communities: share this video to start the conversation with your friends and family. (Tag ActionAid USA so we can give you a shout-out, too!)
