We must put the dignity of crisis-affected women and girls first

2015 saw a lot of devastation, loss of lives and hardship for Nepal. Over the past year, so much work has been done to help the country emerge and recover. We all saw how empowered youth continue to play a key role in the recovery efforts. We also saw how and why the dignity and needs of women and girls should be prioritized at all times, including when a disaster strikes. It doesn’t stop there. We must continue to protect and uphold the dignity of women and girls every day.
