WOMEN

Article 12. Interventions in mental health, education, employment, and socio-economic support should effectively empower all conflict-affected women to play an active role in organising their lives, in self-sufficiency, and in the reduction of dependency. Such efforts are crucial for women in the high-risk groups such as: widows; pregnant women; single mothers; girls who are heads of families; and survivors of organised violence, torture, sexual, and domestic violence. The principle of equal rights must be applied.
