titled “A Feminist Approach to Humanitarian Action”, Hayat spoke truth to power and stood in solidarity with women and girls leading the revolution against a patriarchal, corrupt and sectarian regime in #Lebanon 🇱🇧
Of the 143 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, more than one in four are women and adolescent girls of reproductive age whose rights, safety and dignity are often violated and must be protected. This special session highlighted a feminist approach to humanitarian action as a means of addressing challenges and accelerating progress to achieve the ICPD and 2030 agendas.
