Women on the move

Millions of people are on the move right now, and we know that displaced women are particularly vulnerable. Danish Refugee Council is there, ready to help women fleeing across the world.

When people are on the move, women and girls are particularly vulnerable

Half of all refugees and displaced persons are women and girls. They are mothers, sisters, and daughters from many different countries. 

Regardless of age or nationality, however, all women and girls on the move share one thing in common: they are all at greater risk of abuse and discrimination because of their gender.

Unfortunately, girls and women are also more likely than boys and men to be forced to give up schooling, education, and their dreams for the future. 

Read below how you can help support vulnerable refugee women and girls:
