‘Who holds the microphone?’ Crisis-affected women’s voices on gender-transformative changes in humanitarian settings: Experiences from Bangladesh, Colombia, Jordan and Uganda
This research uses participatory methodologies to explore the experiences of diverse crisis-affected women around gender-transformative change in four humanitarian settings in Bangladesh, Colombia, Jordan, and Uganda. The study provides entry points and recommendations for Grand Bargain signatories to move towards gender-transformative humanitarian action by enhancing women’s meaningful participation in humanitarian responses, and the localization of humanitarian action to women’s rights organizations and self-led groups.
Disease outbreaks and crises including the COVID-19 pandemic affect people differently. Understanding who is most at risk or affected involves focusing on identifying vulnerable groups such as girls and women, people with disabilities, older people, and migrants and refugees. However, there is no such thing as uniform vulnerable groups. Vulnerable persons can belong to more than one group at the same time because people are shaped by a variety of interacting factors and influences. To capture such realities and complexities requires a gender and intersectionality informed assessment of COVID-19. This guideline developed by UN Women, provides a step-by-step guidance designed to produce an in-depth picture of the situation, needs and capacities of women, men, boys and girls of diverse backgrounds to inform recommendations and actions that leave no one behind.
