The protection of women in armed conflicts
  • eman atef omar
The war has historically been the subject of all the attention of men, but this idea does not reflect reality. Because women are increasingly at risk, but they are sometimes targeted in particular at a time of conflict. However, it often turns a blind eye to their needs .
       The aim of the international humanitarian law to prevent human suffering and mitigate them in the wars, without discrimination based on sex, however, recognizes that women face specific problems in armed conflicts.
