This study examines the diversity of experiences of women and girls in Yemen who face differing gender dynamics and challenges at various stages in their lives. It looks at underlying gender dynamics and cultural, social, political and economic challenges at each phase, as well as noting salient changes in the context of the war and the massive humanitarian crisis in Yemen.
The report's author, Marta Colburn, will be among the panelists along with Sana'a Center Economist Amal Nasser and Researcher Rim Mugahed.
