How Do Women and Girls Experience the Worst of War?

Article here. Excerpt:

'War, conflict, and crises introduce women and girls to a very real fear: that their safety and human rights will be the last priority amid the violence. The current war in Ukraine is widely expected to hurt women and girls more than any other population, both in the short and long term.

This is because the same has been true of almost all wars and conflicts in history; it is also something we’ve seen in violence that is currently ongoing in other parts of the world such as the Sahel, Tigray, and Afghanistan.

Simply because of their gender, women and girls caught in the middle of war experience sexual violence, physical and verbal abuse, and barriers in accessing resources and having their human rights met; this is of course all on top of being directly exposed to conflict on the front lines and facing life-threatening conditions.'

. . . being expected to fight on the front lines and potentially die in the process is worse than being expected to look after your family?

The article also says women's and girl's rights should be prioritised in war. Methinks that when unsubstantiated and demonstrably false drivel like this article gets published no oroblem, it is quite clear that is already the case.
