Sexual violence – in and out of conflict settings – is a global phenomenon disproportionately affecting women and girls worldwide. Current data suggest that 1 in 3 women will experience sexual violence in their lifetime. While it has only recently begun to be openly discussed, sexual violence within and against the humanitarian community is not a new or emerging problem. Report the Abuse’s (RTA) survey data suggests that 87% of humanitarian aid workers are reporting they know of a colleague who has experienced sexual violence in the course of their work; 72% of those reporting are survivors themselves.
