The Women's Refugee Commission was established in 1989 to address the particular needs of refugee and displaced women and children.
The Women's Refugee Commission is affiliated with and is legally part of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and does not receive direct financial support from the IRC.
