Executive Summary

2020 should have been a ‘big year for women’s rights’. Instead, progress is being threatened due to COVID-19 – and women affected by conflict are most at risk of being left behind. This briefing draws on the Agenda for Action to set out a recommended approach to COVID-19 prevention, response and recovery that would truly integrate the needs and rights of the most marginalised women already living in some of the most challenging circumstances. It also shares insights and experiences that Women for Women International is hearing from women affected by conflict as well as some key examples of actions taken so far in response to the crisis.
