Lost in the rhetoric and the xenophobia that has arisen due to the ongoing refugee crisis are the stories of millions of women and children fleeing war and persecution for an uncertain future.
The Women's Refugee Commission, founded in 1989, advocates vigorously for laws, policies, and programs to improve the lives and protect the rights of refugee and internally displaced women, children, and young people, including those seeking asylum—bringing about lasting, measurable change.
Sarah Costa is executive director of the Women's Refugee Commission.
