SIM Ep 723 Chops 247: The impact of conflict on women and girls in Ukraine

Clearly what’s happening in Ukraine is horrific for everyone there, but women and girls are particularly at risk during conflict, whether they’re fleeing the country or staying put in Ukraine. 

Suzy Madigan, senior humanitarian advisor on gender and protection at CARE International, has 20+ years experience in humanitarian work, with a focus on helping women and girls, and in this Chops, she explains to Mick the specific risks for them during conflict. They chat about how the Ukraine conflict impacts women and girls, the processes in place and that need to be put in place to help, other emergencies that must not be forgotten, the role of the UK Government, and – of course – what we, the public, can do to help. (Cash not stuff, smashers. Cash not stuff.)
