Tigray six months on; women still bear the brunt of the conflict, warns IRC (International Rescue Committee)

Press Release

Tigray six months on; women still bear the brunt of the conflict, warns IRC

A recent analysis carried out by IRC, focusing on gender-based violence and exploitation finds:

  • Rape is being used as a weapon of war across the conflict
  • There is evidence of sexual exploitation across the conflict
  • Intimate partner violence has increased since the conflict started

Six months on from the beginning of the conflict in Tigray, Ethiopia, a new International Rescue Committee analysis reveals that women and girls across the conflict are experiencing widespread abuse and exploitation against a backdrop of impunity.
