Protecting Female Refugees against Sexual and Gender-based Violence

The Women's Aid Organisation recently released a policy brief that explores the prevalence of sexual and gender-based violence among refugee communities in Malaysia. The brief also highlights the obstacles refugee women face in seeking help and accessing justice and protection, while providing recommendations for stakeholders to solve these issues. We discuss this with WAO's Natasha Dandavati.
