A new UN policy paper published as the Security Council meets on Ukraine, reveals how the ongoing war and its global impacts on food, energy and finance are affecting women and girls disproportionately both inside the country and globally. From school-aged girls who are at risk of being obliged to drop out to get married for dowry or bride-price income for desperate families, to the physical and health challenges of the 265,000 Ukrainian women who were pregnant when the war broke out, the “Global Gendered Impacts of the Ukraine Crisis on Energy Access and Food Security and Nutrition” policy paper lays out how the crisis is aggravating already existing inequalities around the world.
