“There were widespread calls at the Summit for gender equality, women’s empowerment and women’s rights to become pillars of humanitarian action,” concluded the Chair of the World Humanitarian Summit in his official summary. Participants pledged to ensure their programming incorporates the distinct needs and priorities of women and girls—as they themselves define them—making them equal partners and beneficiaries of humanitarian action.

“Standing here among you, I see the future presidents, ministers, judges and rulers of Syria. Go out there and take the leadership, it belongs to you.” Our Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka commended the more than 130 Syrian political and civil society activists at the “Syrian Women Peacemakers” conference in Beirut on their statement of unity. “One day in Syria, it will be remembered that there was a time before this coalition existed and a time after this coalition existed and the difference will be clear,” she said.

Women are not victims, but resourceful, resilient and creative agents of change. Therefore, they should be at the table from the beginning of a crisis to participate in the needs assessment, coordination and implementation of humanitarian action. This is what we and our partners at our joint World Humanitarian Summit side event agreed on, and we called on leaders to prioritize women’s groups in the humanitarian response.

To the world they are known as “refugees”. Nameless, faceless, all the same. But each of them have a different story to tell, of their lives, who they lost, and how they got here. Fleeing from the devastating conflict in the Central African Republic, Hawa, Ardo, Yaya and Ouseina are rebuilding their lives, one day at a time, in a camp in Cameroon. They deserve that we listen to their stories: http://ow.ly/Qntx300v2UH ‪#‎ShareHumanity‬
