A sustainable societies and communities future comes with women changemakers.
Women, though historically oppressed, have always played a crucial role in global communities. As more women are taking leadership positions in social, political, and business roles, it is essential to examine the way in which these women impact cultural development and societal progression. In some cases, these women community leaders’ impact goes beyond their communities and affect transformative cultural change globally.

The Impact Does War Have on Women and Girls
Women and girls have their health and safety, their human rights, and their futures placed at unbelievable risk during conflict.
Simply because of their gender, women and girls caught in the middle of war experience sexual violence, physical and verbal abuse, and barriers in accessing resources and having their human rights met; this is of course all on top of being directly exposed to conflict on the front lines and facing life-threatening conditions.
In its entirety, war is an enemy of progress and threatens to increase extreme poverty for people and nations. Citizens flee their homes toward uncertain displacement; food and other necessities for well-being become scarce; economies face huge losses; and nations see the mass destruction of infrastructure. War, conflict, and crises introduce women and girls to a very real fear: that their safety and human rights will be the last priority amid the violence.

Adults living with children are more likely to be poor. Living with children is associated with higher poverty for adults and it increases the likelihood of poverty for both women and men aged 25–34. But women are more likely to live in households with children than their male counterparts. While women in this age-group are more likely to be married and have small children.

Coming together is what allows us to keep moving forward. It’s so important that women look each other in the eye and go, ‘What’s happening is not okay, and we are not alone in trying to shift it. We are not alone in our pain, and we are not alone in transforming our pain into power.
EMPOWERING YOUNG WOMEN
There’s a reason for despair: the chance of a woman dying in childbirth is three times higher in Africa than in industrialized nations. Moreover, one out of every six children in Africa dies before the age of five. Women must labor not only with this burden, but the burden of being the backbone of the rural economies, farming small plots, selling fruits and vegetables and providing the basic necessities for their families. Still, they have a hard time eking out a living. They often must travel long distances to the markets via dirt roads that are largely impassable, especially during long rainy seasons.
Displacement and refugees affected women:
Amidst record displacement globally, women and girls contend with additional risks during their displacement journey, such as physical and sexual violence, kidnappings, early and forced marriages, and intimate partner violence. Many suffer the resulting trauma for life. Displaced persons suffer significantly higher rates of mortality than the general population. They also remain at high risk of physical attack, sexual assault and abduction, and frequently are deprived of adequate shelter, food and health service.
