Hunger Policies Continue to Ignore Gender - CARE

Hunger Policies Continue to Ignore Gender

Hunger Policies Continue to Ignore Gender is CARE’s updated review of hunger action documents for their inclusion and funding of women and gender centered responses. An assessment of 86 documents demonstrated that organizations responsible for creating evidence on food insecurity and responses to hunger often overlook how gender inequality drives food insecurity for women and girls. Food policies are not keeping pace with the magnitude of the problem partly because they exclude the specific needs of women and girls, as well as their capacity to offer solutions best adapted to their needs.
