Conflict continues to affect the lives of women globally. A record number of people are currently facing displacement due to conflict and persecution (65 million in 2017, approximately half of whom are women and girls).1  An understanding of the disproportionate effect of conflict on women and girls has been enhanced through the UN Security Council Resolutions on Women, Peace and Security (WPS). While women and girls experience many of the same harms as men and boys, they may also have specific sexual and reproductive health needs which are often unmet in, and exacerbated by, crisis situations.
