Narrowing the Gender Gap

Sunday, February 15, 2015

This brief report provides an analysis of ARDD's interactions and fieldwork with Syrian refugee women and Female Heads of Households (FHHs) through the implementation of Narrowing the Gender Gap, a GBV prevention project generously funded by the Embassy of Switzerland in Jordan. The report analyzes some of the challenges facing Syrian refugee women and FHHs, and identifies a new important gap that remains largely unaddressed, namely, the failure to address shattered self-perceptions of Syrian refugee women in their roles as mothers and its profound socio-cultural implications.
