Crises are not gender neutral, and this year’s displacement crisis in Darfur is no exception. This latest emergency, triggered by conflict in the mountainous Jebel Marra region, has disproportionately affected women and girls, including the thousands taking refuge next to Tawilla, an isolated small town in North Darfur. Tawilla is about 65 km from the state capital, El Fasher, and up to three days’ walk from many villages in the Jebel Marra area.
