UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Since October 2017, after being granted access by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Government of Bangladesh, UN Women Bangladesh (BCO) has been engaged in the refugee crisis response for the new influx of Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, BCO has developed a humanitarian response programme in partnership with the Ministry of Women and Children Affairs to meet the specific needs of the most vulnerable and marginalised Rohingya Refugee Women and Girls in Cox’s Bazar. The objective of the programme is to ensure protection, as well as equitable and safe access to and benefit from urgent life-saving humanitarian assistance and information to the most vulnerable, and marginalized Rohingya women while assisting them to live with dignity. The programme also promotes women’s participation and leadership in community management and peace and social cohesion building activities. UN Women further works in Bangladeshi host communities in Cox’s Bazar to promote women’s socio-economic empowerment as a means for social cohesion, recovery and resilience building. UN Women co-chairs the Gender in Humanitarian Action (GIHA) Working Group for the Rohingya Refugee Response with UNHCR to promote gender-responsive humanitarian action across the humanitarian coordination system and humanitarian agencies in Cox’s Bazar.
Over half (52 per cent) of the Rohingya refugees are women and girls, including 16 per cent who are female-headed households, who are disproportionately impacted. This crisis has a particular gendered nature due to restrictive gender norms and practices leading to gender discrimination and barriers to basic services and information, and high prevalence of sexual and gender-based violence.
