Women in War

By Emily Janoch, Kalkidan Lakew, Yingxin Zhang, Florence Santos, Nicole Paul · May 29, 2024

600 million women around the world live within 50 kilometers of a conflict zone, more than double the number it was in the 1990s. Yet our understanding of how women experience war and respond in these highly complex crises is often clouded by narratives that frame them as, at worst, invisible, or at best, victims. Women in War: Leaders, Responders, and Potential challenges these prevailing views by exploring how women endure conflict, and offers recommendations on how to better address their unique needs and challenges.

CARE 2023 Annual Report

March 8, 2024

The global crises we faced in 2023 left us with little time to catch our breath. Earthquakes, floods, cyclones, and droughts dominated the year, accentuated by the ongoing effects of climate change and the humanitarian toll of conflict. This year saw a record-high number refugees – more than 100 million – as ongoing conflict in Ukraine continues to devastate food systems worldwide. Through it all, CARE has been there, as we have been for 78 years: working hand-in-hand with communities to bring relief and hope, supporting women and girls because they are disproportionally poor and have the greatest leverage to defeat poverty.
