Peace and security, gender equality

Women should participate in decision-making about the forms of assistance and protection they need. They can provide many efforts in preparing for, and responding to crises of different types. In fact, in some situations, women’s point of views on issues may have the ability to prevent or even put a stop to a crisis. 

Humanitarian action can also present opportunities for new and more progressive gender roles and relationships to appear. 

BWF promotes the UN Sustainable Development Goal for gender equality in the future Belarus, for independence and self-determination of Belarus women.

BWF invites and encourages men to involve in strengthening gender equality, supporting the women's movements and raising awareness of the role of women in modern social and civil processes in Belarus.
