No Women, No Peace

By Swasti Gautam · June 3, 2024

When crises hit, women step-up as leaders, engaging hands-on to navigate challenges. Women leaders are often overlooked and unsupported in times of crisis, yet they continue to make considerable contributions. They deliver essential health and nutrition services to the most vulnerable. They document human rights abuses and work to make communities safer. They strengthen their livelihoods through resourcefulness and creativity. CARE's Women in War research shows that women are the key to effective crises recovery and long-term peacebuilding. By removing barriers to their participation and amplifying the critical work they are already doing, we can give women the recognition they deserve and empower them to change the future of crisis response.

CARE’s integrative and gender transformative approach to increased market systems engagement puts small-scale women producers and firms at the center. Push interventions support and develop approaches that strengthen small-scale producers’ capacity to engage effectively with markets, while pull strategies facilitate the development of market systems in a manner that expands the diversity and quality of opportunities accessible to the ultra poor to engage more successfully in the local economy. This brief demonstrates multiple examples of CARE's pull intervention approach.

Building caring economies as a pathway to economic and gender justice

May 15, 2024

Care work is the backbone of our society, yet caring systems around the world are broken and leaving women and girls disproportionately impacted. This joint report by CARE International and the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women demonstrates how and why governments and decisionmakers should invest in building caring economies in line with the 5Rs of care to achieve gender and economic justice globally, and presents four original case studies of women entrepreneurs from the UK, Kenya and Vietnam as practical examples of positive outcomes of such investments. It concludes with a list of six recommendations on how decisionmakers – including governments, donors, multilateral agencies and the private sector – should build caring economies.

Rafah Governorate: Deception, Destruction & Death in the “Safe” Zone (Rapid Gender Analysis)

May 14, 2024

The ongoing crisis in the Gaza Strip has been described as a “human rights crisis, a human-made humanitarian disaster” and a “war on woman.” Since October 7th there has been mass scale forced displacement of over a million Palestinians from Northern Gaza to Southern Governorates. The aim of this RGA was to hear from women and men currently in Rafah, with a focus on those providing essential services to communities and Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in the Governorate. The aim was to better understand the experiences of women, men, girls and boys at this moment, and to identify how CARE and the local and international humanitarian community, including U.N. Agencies, can best respond - understanding the formidable challenges and barriers to do so.
