Understanding the women's movement in Ukraine

April 12, 2024

The Women Leading Response and Recovery (WLRR) project in Ukraine aimed to rapidly respond to the largest invasion in Europe since World War II. The program aimed to support women’s right organizations to coordinate response to help meet the needs of women and girls affected by war. To ensure that this response was evidence based and responsive, the WLRR project conducted a series of rapid assessments to understand the needs of internally displaced women (IDW) as well as local women. This technical brief highlights the results from these rapid assessments as well as the differences among IDW and local women’s needs.
