She's first. Help her lead the way.
When crisis strikes, women and girls are the first to be harmed, the first to be marginalized, the first to be forgotten.
They are also the first to take their families to safety, the first to unite, the first to rebuild. Women and girls have the vision, strength and determination to transform their lives and create a path to peace, recovery and stability for their communities.
The IRC provides tools, training, and resources to protect women and girls from violence and enable them to move from surviving to thriving, in the U.S. and around the world.
Explore how the IRC is helping to protect and empower women and girls: We provide lifesaving critical care during humanitarian emergencies. And in the aftermath of crisis, we offer empowerment programs to help women and girls rebuild their lives, families and communities — and thrive over the long term.
