The devastating impact on women of the ongoing conflict in Sudan and the crucial role they can play in the peace process
As we all know, women, along with children, are the most vulnerable targets in wartime.
Gender-based violence and crime, such as rape and the destruction of property and lives, are the greatest threats to women, and these crimes are often overlooked and committed with impunity.
According to UN estimates, even before the fighting broke out on April 15, more than 3 million women and girls in Sudan were at risk of gender-based violence. This figure has since risen to 4.2 million.
