The Coalition Killed (2,086) Yemeni Women, Leaves The Rest In Suffer


The Saudi-led coalition, has claimed the lives of many Yemenis directly through combat or through disease and hunger.The war also had a much longer term impact on Yemeni society. It has changed the country especially for women.

After three years of war, Yemen’s legal rights center reported that 2,086 women in Yemen had been killed by Saudi-backed coalition warplanes, and 2284 women had been injured ,which led to hard changed in their lives.

The surviving women of the coalition warplanes live in the most difficult situation with a humanitarian crisis that the country has suffered because of the war. The Yemeni women suffer many concerns, such as their desire to find electricity, salaries, drugs and safety, for themselves and their children.

As the instability extends over the course of the war on Yemen, women are gradually finding themselves in charge, as the men in their lives are either killed or out fighting. The problem of being in charge without basic resources is a very consuming one.

Across Yemen, women find themselves in charge of managing the poverty afflicting their communities and they do so with very few resources.

It’s not just a fear for lives or economic insecurity that has placed so many Yemeni women in this situation. It is also the lack of routine, such as their children not knowing whether they can or should go to school, parents not knowing whether they have a source of income or how to put food on the table and sick people not having access to healthcare.

But Yemen’s women who during the war have maintained the social fabric of society and kept communities together. They are the nurturers, mediators, peacemakers, and keepers of tradition.

As well as the women of Yemen, sending their men to the front lines knowing that they may never see them again. But they do so out of self-defense and the country.
