Tackling one of the world's worst humanitarian crises has become even harder for female aid workers as tightening male guardianship rules by Houthi authorities restrict their movement.
This article by Lisa Barrington, writing for Reuters, makes the following points:
- Women refusing to take a guardian cannot oversee and assist in aid projects.
- If women take a guardian, gender-sensitive work is more difficult, and aid budgets need to increase.
- Aid groups say that without female staff, it becomes more challenging to do simple things such as identification checks on women.
