80% of refugees and other displaced persons
Women are affected by armed conflict in a variety of ways: they are victims of gender-based violence, peace and reconstruction actors, and combatants or members of the armed forces, volunteers or not. Women and children constitute some 80 % of the world’s millions of refugees and other displaced persons, including internally displaced persons. In addition, women often become caregivers for injured combatants and find themselves, as a result of conflict, unexpectedly cast as sole manager of household, sole parent, and caretaker of elderly relatives.
