A booklet of drawings, proverbs and memorable messages in local Arabic language helps girls and women to protect themselves from the daily harassment, rape and physical violence during looting, which they are exposed to in IDP or refugee camps. A trainer on community based protection techniques, it is a must read for parents, traditional leaders, children, juveniles and teachers. Gathered from women in IDP camps the illustrations and advice reveals that violence against women committed during armed conflict continues inside the camps. The reader concludes that the protection of girls and women is a shared responsibility - as lifting blame from the victims and impunity from perpetrators is.
