Because I am a girl: the state of the world’s girls 2013 - in double jeopardy: adolescent girls and disasters

Source(s):  Plan International

The seventh report in Plan’s annual State of the World’s Girls series, ‘In Double Jeopardy’, looks at what happens to adolescent girls in disasters and why. Using original research and the voices of girls themselves, it shows how adolescent girls’ rights are being ignored
before, during and after disasters, both in the urgency of a disaster response, and in the gaps between humanitarian and development work.

The report examines the tension between girls’ vulnerability to violence, and the resilience they so often show in times of crisis, and explores what needs to be done.

The results show that listening to what adolescent girls have to say, ensuring both their rights and their needs are catered for, and strengthening their resilience, are key missing pieces of current humanitarian work.
