Women in Wartime Ukraine

Miriam Mandel: Women in Wartime Ukraine. How Feminist Foreign Policy Can Strengthen Political Minorities in Humanitarian Crisis. AIES Focus 2024/1.



Wars hold a gender dimension – a facet that can also be found in the ongoing war in Ukraine. Therefore, especially in conflict scenarios, support for women and political minorities is needed from outside to counteract reinforced inequalities and tackle gender-specific consequences of war. Feminist Foreign Policy (FFP) is an approach that highlights gendered discrimination and works to improve women's rights, participation, and access to resources. In this AIES Focus Paper, FFP is used to analyse the humanitarian situation in Ukraine and identify a foreign policy strategy targeting existing challenges for women and political minorities.
