Feminist Humanitarian Action: From Affirmation to Transformation
It is essential that feminist perspectives are used to analyse and challenge global inequalities and power structures, and to rethink the humanitarian action. Therefore, at this year’s Humanitarian Congress, we will discuss strategies and best practices for sexual and reproductive health and rights in crisis preparedness and response.
