The impact of conflict on women and girls in Ukraine

Suzy Madigan, senior humanitarian advisor on gender and protection at CARE International, has 20+ years experience in humanitarian work, with a focus on helping women and girls, and in this Chops, she explains to Mick the specific risks for them during conflict. They chat about how the Ukraine conflict impacts women and girls, the processes in place and that need to be put in place to help, other emergencies that must not be forgotten, the role of the UK Government, and – of course – what we, the public, can do to help. (Cash not stuff, smashers. Cash not stuff.)

Help us keep making great women-championing content by throwing us a bit of cash/coin/bunce/wedge/dollar/Euros/money/bread.

We love making the Standard Issue podcast and we’re incredibly proud that so many people are listening. We want to keep making Standard Issue, and give our awesome listeners even more women-championing content, documentary specials and chopses with brilliant birds.

All the cool podcast kids are on Patreon, so we’ve decided to give that a bash. And so, if you like what we do, then please chuck us a bit of money. We really appreciate it. Here is a link to our Patreon page.

How Patreon works (spoiler: it’s really simple). Patreon is a crowdfunding platform for creators. Artists, creators and, in our case, podcasters are paid by patrons (you please) who give us an amount of cash you’re comfy with each month. And you can stop giving it whenever you choose. You’re in control.

And as a patron? You’ll be helping fund a smart, sharp and funny magazine-style podcast for women interested in everything.


All women. No matter your age, background or where you live. 

Thanks champs.
