After a natural and man-made disaster, communities face hunger, illness, displacement, trauma and death but women and children face particular risks from sexual violence and trafficking. This event is part of our "Rising for Justice" Philippines campaign and will aim to explore the deeper causes and consequences of environmental and social injustice, the specific impact on women, and will also highlight how our incredible community women are rebuilding, organizing and rising after the destruction of Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan.
What does justice look like for the women in the Philippines?
