Protect and empower Ukrainian women and girls

Since February 24, more than 600,000 Ukrainians, a vast majority of whom are women and girls, have fled their homes and sought refuge in neighboring countries. At least 160,000 people have been internally displaced across Ukraine amid frigid winter temperatures. These numbers are expected to increase significantly within the current context, which will reverse the important progress made on gender equality and women’s rights in Ukraine as well as in neighboring countries.

UN Women stands in solidarity with the women of Ukraine, including those who had to flee their homes and separate from their loved ones, those who stayed to provide humanitarian support in extremely difficult circumstances and at great risk, and the women human rights defenders and activists who are making their voices heard in calling for peace.

We are committed to supporting Ukraine’s people, especially its women and girls, at this time of greatest need.
UN Women is working closely with women’s civil society organizations, the UN Resident Coordinator, and the UN Country Team in monitoring the situation to determine how to best continue to deliver on the ground.
In Moldova, our team is planning targeted interventions and developing our humanitarian response for Ukrainian refugees.
