This Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) highlights the gender dynamics in the war in Ukraine – both pre-existing and emerging – and draws out recommendations for humanitarian leadership, actors and donors to ensure consideration of the gendered dimensions of risks, vulnerability and capabilities in response to the crisis.
This analysis by UN Women is based on secondary data resources, including pre-war information and information that has been released after the invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022. Resources comprise English, Ukrainian and Russian language humanitarian information resources and media, as well as information obtained through anecdotal discussions with UN Women’s partners. This analysis builds upon the RGA Ukraine Brief developed by CARE International during the first week of the crisis.
