Some Programs Helping Women Affected By War, Sexual Violence Could Be Impacted By U.S. Funding Reductions

The Guardian: Insult to injury: how Trump’s ‘global gag’ will hit women traumatized by war

And the people who pick up the pieces are usually aid workers, as it is their health centers and ‘safe spaces’ and camp programs that help women to work through the trauma of loss, displacement, and sexual violence. Funding for this work quite often features the U.S. government. … But all that is now at risk, after President Donald Trump’s decision[s] to reinstate the so-called global gag rule [and withhold funding for UNFPA]…” (Sutton et al., 8/1).
