Focus: Livelihoods, Right to Work

As part of an awareness-raising campaign regarding making work safe for displaced women, the Women's Refugee Commission and the AidSpeak blog are inviting posts that consider "Gender-based Violence and Livelihoods: How Do We Do Better?" through 15 October 2012.  Here is the first contribution.  See also this earlier blog post summarizing a webinar that discussed these issues.
