The organization stated in its statistic in conjunction with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women that the number of killed women reached 2,435, while 2,862 were wounded.
It referred to the catastrophic and tragic conditions experienced by Yemeni women, as a result of the aggression and siege, as the number of violations committed by the forces of aggression on the West Coast reached 695, including 132 rape crimes and 56 kidnapping crimes.
Violations in the southern governorates, and Aden in particular, amounted to 443 rape crimes, according to reports.
The organization emphasized that the aggression and blockade have deprived women of their right to access health services. That is by targeting hospitals and centers, spreading diseases and epidemics, and increasing malnutrition rates, especially among pregnant and lactating women. In addition, the rate of abortions and fetal deformities increases as a result of the use of internationally prohibited weapons.
It showed that more than 1.5 million pregnant and breastfeeding women suffer from malnutrition, including 650,495 women with moderate malnutrition. Meanwhile, a woman and six newborns die every two hours due to complications during pregnancy or during childbirth. It is estimated that the number of women who could lose their lives during pregnancy or childbirth is approximately 17,000 women.
According to the organization, nearly 70 percent of obstetric medicines are not available in Yemen due to the blockade and the coalition’s prevention of their entry into Yemen. It noted that about half of the 4.3 million displaced people are women, 27 percent of whom are under eighteen years of age, which is what increases their risk of violence.
The organization pointed out that with the lack of shelter options available, displaced women and girls suffer most due to the lack of privacy, the threat to their safety, and the lack of access to basic services, which makes them more vulnerable to violence and abuse.
It stated that one out of every three displaced families is headed by women. The age of girls who support 21 percent of these families is less than 18 years old. According to a UN report, 60,000 women have lost their husbands, and the number of families headed by women at the level of Yemen has reached 417,000 families.
With regard to education, women were deprived of this right as a result of the aggression's targeting of educational facilities, the economic blockade, and the non-payment of salaries. All of these resaons led to the inability of some families to provide basic educational needs, such as breakfast, and 31 percent of Yemeni girls became out of school.
The organization held the US-Saudi aggression responsible for all crimes and violations against civilians, especially women and children. It called on the international community, organizations and human rights and humanitarian bodies to bear legal and humanitarian responsibility for the violations and heinous massacres that occur against civilians.
It called on the free people of the world to take effective and positive action to stop the aggression and protect civilians, and to form an independent international commission to investigate all crimes committed against the Yemeni people.
Saudi Arabia, backed by the United States and regional allies, launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, with the claim of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi back to power.
The war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases there.
